WEST CHESTER, PA — The Chester County District Attorney’s Office announced Christopher Hersh, age 36, was found guilty by a jury of multiple counts of burglary, theft, receiving stolen property, and conspiracy after a weeklong trial that ended late Friday.
Authorities state Hersh, along with two others, broke into and ransacked multiple homes in southern Chester County, stealing thousands of dollars of valuables. The other two co-conspirators have already been convicted.
Chester County District Attorney Deb Ryan stated, “These defendants terrorized many families by breaking into their homes, stealing their valuables and taking important keepsakes. Their sense of security and safety was destroyed because of their unlawful and callous actions.
“We thank all of the law enforcement officers who worked together to help us secure justice in this case including the Pennsylvania State Police, Kennett Township Police Department and the West Caln Township Police Department.”
Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. Stefano Gallina, Kennett Township Detective Amanda Wenrich, and West Caln Township Sgt. Tony Sparano jointly assisted with the investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys ADAs Zack Yurick and Jessica Acito.
