Ashland Police Arrest Man After Brock Street Break-In

A man is locked up in Schuylkill County Prison after he broke into a home in Ashland over the weekend.

According to court papers, on Saturday, July 6th, 2024, Ashland Police received a call for an unwanted person at 1128 Brock Street.  The call came from the owner/contractor of the property.

At the scene, Police Officer Daniel Weikel spoke with the property owner who was arguing with another male at the home.

The male, later identified as Bryan Olimpo, of Coatesville, then became angry towards Officer Weikel, told him the situation was none of his business, and to get back in his car and leave or he was going to kill him.

Olimpo then stated that the people that previously owned the property owed him money and he was at the house to collect.  Olimpo then went back inside and slammed the door.  He had admitted to using a hammer to get into the home.

Police backup arrived and Olimpo continued to argue with police.

The officers were able to get Olimpo onto a back patio where he began to fight with police where he had to be tazed twice to get him under control.  

Olimpo was charged by Officer Weikel with burglary, criminal trespass, and terroristic threats.

He was arraigned Saturday morning by Magisterial District Judge Edward Tarantelli and locked up in Schuylkill County Prison on $50,000 straight cash bail.

Olimpo remains locked up with a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 17th, 2024, before Judge Tarantelli.
