Local Intruder Found Sleeping On Couch

By Mary Robb Jackson

MANORVILLE (KDKA) — For Madison Ray Dosch, New Year’s Day did not go as planned.

The 63-year-old man from McGrann, Armstrong County, is accused of breaking into a house on Water Street in Manorville after he was thrown out of a local bar on New Year’s Eve.

State Police say he found an axe outside and used it to shatter glass in the front door.

He then allegedly ransacked the place, pulling out drawers, dumping contents on the floor, scattering ammo, removing weapons from a cabinet and damaging the bathroom medicine chest door.

He also pulled equipment from a shed, leaving it in the backyard and helped himself to the fridge drinking a gallon of juice and defrosting a couple of two-pound bags of French fries.

Then he fell asleep on this living room couch like Goldilocks.

The home’s owner, out-of-town for the holidays, had asked a neighbor to check his place.

At 8 a.m., the startled neighbor finding Dosch sleeping yelled, “Who are you?” Dosch calmly held out his hand to shake and answered, “Madison Dosch.”

Arriving troopers got much the same reception. Dosch was arrested, leaving behind a shirt as well as his guitar and sunglasses.

Dosch was charged with criminal trespass, possession of a controlled substance and criminal mischief. He remains in the Armstrong County Jail in lieu of a $15,000 bond.

    Man, what a stupid loser. This guy wins the 2011 Darwin Awards. Hopefully he gets a lot of rest in jail. About 20 years should be about right.

      It takes a certain kind of genius to bring up “Darwin Awards” when the person isn’t dead, and is already old enough to have grandchildren.

  2. FixPGH says:

    anyone think he may have a mental problem? Don’t be quick to call someone a “loser.” Only losers do that.

    1. One small voice says:

      Wonder what you would have done if you came home and found this guy in your home. Cook him breakfast or kick his ass.

    2. Ace Slick says:

      And a person who justifies the actions of a person like him, would be called what?

      Maybe you and him were bunk mates at Mayview.
