A Lawrence County man is facing charges in relation to multiple burglaries that occurred in five counties, including here in Butler.
Michael Mason is accused of breaking into homes in Beaver, Butler, Armstrong, Mercer and Lawrence counties in 2017.
Authorities say Mason would knock on doors, and if there was no answer, he would kick in the door and burglarize the residence. Police say jewelry, guns and money were taken from homes.
The alleged burglaries occurred nearly three dozen times between March and April of 2017. Police are hopeful that other potential victims recognize Mason and will give them a call.
