Unwanted texts, an unwanted person, an unclaimed car, a found wallet and unfound wallet owner, and a couple of unlocked doors were among matters Port Allegany Police dealt with in the week that began Monday, April 25 and ended Sunday, May 1.
Last Monday morning at 9 a.m. Chief Dave Distrola was notified of the theft of a tractor-trailer rim and tire from a Pearl Street location.
At 11:55 a.m. he was called about a vehicle that had been parked on the junior-senior high school parking lot for the past week. It is a white Toyota registered to David Wolfe of Coudersport. Distrola was unsuccessful in locating contact information for the owner. The vehicle had not been reported or listed as stolen.
At 6:30 p.m. Officer Adam Dickerson received a complaint about a vehicle parked on a Church Street sidewalk. The owner was issued a parking ticket.
Last Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. Chief Distrola received a complaint from Stacy Yeager of Vine Street to the effect that an ex-girlfriend was thought to have changed passwords on his Yahoo e-mail account and blocked his access, meanwhile sending unwanted e-mail to his contacts. Distrola advised Yeager to notify Yahoo.
At 3 p.m. Distrola was sent to North Main Street at Chestnut Street where there had been a vehicle crash. According to witnesses, a silver Buick driven by Lloyd Eastman had veered into the opposite lane and clipped the rear bumper of a white Dodge driven by Marcia Lamar of Shinglehouse, and then proceeded completely across the lane and struck a tree in front of 115 North Main Street.
Eastman suffered a minor head injury and was transported by ambulance to Charles Cole Memorial Hospital. His vehicle was severely damaged, and was towed by McKiernan’s. Marcia Lamar and a passenger, Thomas Lamar, were not injured and the Lamar vehicle was drivable. No citations were issued.
At 8 p.m. Officer Tony Tanner received a complaint from Debbie Bidwell saying that Ashley Carpenter was not following the stipulations of her bail conditions. Tanner contacted Magisterial District Judge William Todd, who advised Tanner to arrest Carpenter and bring her into court.
At 10:21 p.m. Tanner arrested Carpenter and took her to the magistrate, who revoked her bail. She was transported to McKean County Jail.
Tanner was notified of a lost wallet, at 10:36 p.m. The wallet, which belongs to Dwayne Howard, was not located or turned in.
Friday evening at 7 Officer Tanner helped a motorist with a vehicle lock-out on Harrison Street.
At 10:40 he found an unsecured open door at Well House No. 7. He secured the door. There were no indications that anything had been disturbed.
Saturday morning at 9 Chief Distrola received a complaint concerning alleged harassing text messages from a Brooklynside resident. He advised the complainant to contact Pennsylvania State Police, but said he would try to locate the sender and advise that person to discontinue texting the complainant.
At 3:30 p.m. Distrola was dispatched to Sheetz for a report of an unwanted person being on the premises. The subject had left when Distrola got there, apparently having made a purchase, but not having caused a disturbance. He was located later and reminded that he was not to be on Sheetz property.
At 8:10 a.m. Sunday Officer Joseph Dzubak found a door open at the back of the former coffee shop.
At 10:10 a.m. Dzubak assisted someone in retrieving property from an East Mill Street address. The individual had been reluctant to go by himself.
