        WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP — A pair of alert police officers are being credited with arresting four people and recovering more than $10,000 in goods that might have been stolen from sites in three communities, authorities said Tuesday.

        Dennis Bachelier, 18, and Robert Schroeder, 19, both of Norwood, are scheduled for preliminary hearings Monday in Butler County Area III Court, West Chester.

        Mr. Bachelier was released on his promise to appear in court; Mr. Schroeder's bond was set at $9,500 and he remained in the Butler County Jail on Tuesday.

        The men and a pair of teen-aged girls were arrested early Sunday near a construction site in the 6300 block of Centre Park Drive. Knowing about a rash of thefts from such sites, Officers Rich Michaud and Neil Schmitz stopped the group's vehicle about 4:30 a.m., Sgt. Matt Brillhart said.

        West Chester officers found power saws and other tools, digital cameras, fax machines and other items, Sgt. Brillhart said.

        Each man is charged with breaking and entering, theft, receiving stolen property, possession of criminal tools and contributing to the delinquency of a child, according to police reports.

        The girls were sent to the county's Juvenile Detention Center, then released either to their parents or a child protection agency, officers said.
