Sadar was wanted on two criminal bench warrants issued out of Allegheny County this week. The first warrant was issued for Failure to Report for Sentencing on the charges of Robbery – Inflict Serious Bodily Injury (2), Theft By Unlawful Taking – Movable Property, Firearms Not To Be Carried Without License and Terroristic Threats with Intent To Terrorize Others. These charges stem from an incident occurring in the evening hours of January 13, 2009 at the Dollar General on Saltsburg Road in the Municipality of Penn Hills. Officers responded to a situation involving an armed robbery. Shortly after officers arrived, they viewed a man matching the suspect’s description fleeing from the scene. After a brief foot pursuit leading to an apartment complex, Sadar was located and taken into custody.
Sadar’s other warrant, which was also issued due to Failure to Report for Sentencing, involved drug charges from a 2009 incident. Sadar was charged with Manufacturing/Delivering/Possession with Intent to Manufacture or Deliver (2) and Intent/Possession of a Controlled Substance By Person Not Registered. In this incident, Sadar was charged do to his involvement in the sale of stamp bags of heroin.
After failing to report, warrants were issued regarding both incidents earlier this week. Due to Sadar’s extensive criminal background, the warrants became a high priority and deputies began working immediately to locate the fugitive.
This morning, sheriff’s deputies attempted to locate Sadar at numerous addresses. Although deputies were unsuccessful, important information was obtained leading them to an address in the 300 block of Broadway Street in Pitcairn. Deputies, along with Pitcairn Police surrounded the house and announced themselves numerous times. While doing so, deputies could hear movement within the house and were received into the residence. After gaining entry to the home, two men were located and detained; one of which was Sadar. After a complete search of the house, deputies found fortification tools inside the front door including hooks, levers and 2 X 4 piece of wood to prevent access into the house. Deputies transported Sadar to the Allegheny County Jail where he will be held without bond.
Pitcairn Police took the second man, Warren Madden, into custody on miscellaneous drug charges after officers located a device commonly used for smoking crack cocaine. Due to this arrest, Madden violated his probation and will be charged accordingly.
