According to Pennsylvania statutes, a person is guilty if he enters a building or occupied structure, with the purpose to commit a crime therein, unless the premises are at the time open to the public or unless the actor is licensed or privileged to enter.

The Scranton Times-Tribune reports that a Tunkhannock man broke into a Clarks Summit post office in an attempt to retrieve a package containing bath salts. The post office was closed at the time because of the Martin Luther King holiday. Bath salts recently were classified as an illegal susbstance since the chemical is used for intoxicating purposes. The suspect ihas been charged with felony counts of burglary and theft as well as of a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass.
