A man accused of breaking into 20 local businesses is now heading to trial.
Jose Flores appeared in Erie County Court for a preliminary hearing. Investigators say Flores stole from several Erie storefronts and restaurants in mid-December.
Police tracked down surveillance video of him in the act. Today, the judge waived all charges in two cases against Flores.
He has another preliminary hearing scheduled for remaining cases next month. He’s currently being held in Erie County Prison on $100,000 bond.
