Burglary charge dismissed against Centralia man

MARION COUNTY — A 52-year-old Centralia man was released Friday from the Marion County Jail, after prosecutors elected to not pursue a Class 2 felony burglary charge they filed against him the previous day.

Berk Cunningham was arrested Wednesday night by Central City Police, for an alleged incident November 11 during which he allegedly took a ShopVac from his ex-girlfriend’s home.

Cunningham was formally charged Thursday morning with Class 2 felony burglary and bail was set at $50,000. However, prosecutors elected Friday to dismiss the case.
