A man arrested for a rash of home burglaries in Adams and Cumberland counties is headed to trial for the crimes.

Jeremy Lentvorsky, 28, of Biglerville, waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday before District Judge Susan Day, who forwarded the case to Cumberland County court and scheduled a formal arraignment for April 18.

Lentvorsky faces 77 counts, including 32 felony counts each of burglary and theft by unlawful taking and four felony counts of attempted burglary. He remains in the Cumberland County Prison on $25,000 bail.

Two co-defendants, 29-year-old Amy Michelle Copp, also of Biglerville, and 25-year-old Cassie Arlene Swartz, of Carlisle, have preliminary hearings scheduled for next month.

Police have said Lentvorsky burglarized the homes after knocking on doors. If someone answered, he would ask about a his dog. If no one was home, police said he went into the residences and stole property such as money and jewelry.

Authorities said Copp and Swartz helped to sell the stolen property at pawn shops. The money, they said, was used to fund drug habits.
