Man Guilty of Fentanyl Patch Theft

One of the Bradford men charged for breaking into a woman’s home and stealing a Fentanyl patch off her arm has been found guilty.

40-year-old Richard Cavallero II was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary, criminal trespass and simple assault, as well as solicitation of robbery.

In July of last year Cavallero and 28-year-old Tyler Sherman went to the woman’s home, knocked on the door and said they were “Bradford Police.” Court records say the woman was suspicious so she went to the door to peek out and see who was outside, when Sherman broke the door open, pushed his way in, grabbed the woman, put a knife to her throat and screamed at her, telling her to hand over her prescription for morphine patches. The woman said she didn’t have a prescription, and only had the patch on her arm. Sherman ripped the patch from her arm, took her phone and ran away.

No sentencing date has been set yet for Cavallero. Sherman pleaded guilty to robbery and is serving 5 to 10 years in state prison.

Theft? Where I come from that's called a HOME INVASION. Nice way to sugar coat our lovely town.
