VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The trial for a man accused of breaking into Virginia Beach homes while residents slept has been pushed back.

A spokesperson for the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office said the trial for Drake Hermann has been continued because his attorney is sick. A new trial date will be picked on March 19.

Police arrested Hermann in connection to three different burglaries in the Holland Pines neighborhood. Hermann  is faced with numerous charges, including burglary and grand larceny.

In one incident in March 2018, Hermann is accused of breaking into a house on Meadowood Drive as the family was sleeping upstairs. Hermann allegedly took laptops, a Toyota Camry and some clothing, including a black and gray hoodie.

Hermann allegedlly broke into a home on Chestwood Drive just days later and stole a wallet.

Security video released from a 7-Eleven store showed a suspect use a credit card to buy $10 in gas. The suspect, who was seen wearing a black and gray hoodie, drove away in a Camry.

Officers later tracked down and arrested Hermann, who is charged with several courts of entering a dwelling, grand larceny, breaking and entering, credit card theft, credit card fraud and grand larceny of a motor vehicle. He has remained in jail under no bond.
