Two Blossburg residents have been charged for shoplifting at the Mansfield Walmart December 10. State police say a Walmart Asset Protection employee told them that 31 year old Chelsea Garverick and 41 year old Roy Barrett walked out of the store a few minutes before 3:00 pm with a cart full of merchandise without paying for the items. The suspects were seen loading the items into a black Dodge Dakota and driving out of the parking lot. Garverick had previously been issued notice she was not allowed on Walmart property. A review of security surveillance was conducted and confirmed the theft.

Cameron County

A 59 year old Sinnemahoning  woman was scammed out of $1200 December 17 or 18. Troopers at Emporium said the victim was deceived on Facebook Messenger and the money was transferred through CashApp and Zelle.

Coudersport state police investigated a theft in Harrison Township last Tuesday. Troopers did not explain how the crime was committed but said $1065 total was taken from two Direct Express Cards belonging to a 45 Westfield woman.

A trespass  occurring on Blass Hollow Road in Abbott Township sometime since December 3 was investigated by state police. A man door dead bolt valued at $30.00 and a Gate U bolt valued at $10.00 on property owned by Ralph Wunderlich of Douglassville, PA were damaged by the intruder.

State police at Coudersport arrested a 20 year old Allegany, NY resident, whose name was withheld, for criminal trespass for an incident taking place around 2:30 am December 29 on River Lane in Coudersport. The suspect allegedly knocked on doors and was found sleeping under the influence in a detached garage at one of the residences.
