Burglary Suspect Arrested After Hospital Release


HAZLETON – Police filed burglary and trespassing charges against a man from Freeland who was shot by a homeowner when he was allegedly burglarizing a home last weekend.

Zachary Dangelo was arraigned after he was release from the Hospital Friday afternoon, where he was being treated for a gunshot wound to the pelvis.

Court documents said a man, who has not been publicly identified, found Dangelo allegedly burglarizing his home on North Hayes Street last weekend and shot the man when he reached for something in his waistband.

The Luzerne County District Attorney’s office is investigating the circumstances of the shooting to determine if the homeowner was within his rights to defend his property and personal safety.
