Two Kearneysville, W.Va., men were charged in connection with a Friday burglary at a Hancock home, according to court records.

Washington County District Judge Ralph H. France II, set bond for Bradley A. Wilt, 23, at $200,000 and for Jerry W. Wilt Jr., 27, at $75,000 on Wednesday, court records state.

The Wilts, whose exact addresses in Kearneysville were not listed, are each charged with first- and fourth-degree burglary, conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary, theft more than $500 and conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary, records state.

Deputies said the charges stem from a Friday afternoon break-in at a home in the 13700 block of Hollow Road in Hancock. Several items were taken, including a PlayStation gaming system, video games, a fishing rod and a fishing reel.

Court records say the Wilts were taken into custody by Pennsylvania State Police on Monday in connection with a recent series of daytime burglaries in Pennsylvania.

Both men were being held Wednesday at the Washington County Detention Center on multiple sets of charges, a detention center spokesman said. The spokesman declined to release additional information on the other charges.
