Three suspects are facing a long list of charges for convenience store robberies in West Mifflin and Dravosburg, but police believe they could also be responsible for more than a half dozen other hold-ups.
Investigators were called to the Derry Township home at 12:53 a.m., and the resident told police that he awoke moments before he saw Nathan Paul Krinock, 30, rummaging through his bedroom closet, according to an affidavit.
A thief used a rock to break the glass, and get in through the front door, officials said. He came back a few moments later, climbed in, spent a couple of minutes inside taking as many cigarettes as he could, and then left the same way he came in.
Police Chief Jeff Becze said the Girl Scouts western Pennsylvania organization alleged troop leader Stephaine Thorpe, 32, of Ellwood City never turned in the money and that the funds have been overdue since the end of March. Thorpe is charged with theft.
Somebody stole hundreds of grenades and explosive charges in Portugal. And that motherlode will likely wind up in the hands of jihadis who want to bring terror deep into Europe.
MADRID—The arsenal is a terrorist’s dream: 150 live hand grenades, 44 rocket propelled grenades, 1,450 9mm cartridges, 18 tear gas grenades, scores of triggers and detonators of various kinds, 102 explosive charges, and 264 blocks of plastic explosive. Such is the inventory of deadly materiel that was stolen from a military installation in Portugal on June 28 and is still missing.
Then, two days after that robbery, a van loaded with nitroglycerin was robbed in Barcelona, Spain. Those explosives have not been recovered either.
The accused thief stole several “vintage U.S. and foreign carded action figures, many of them rare and important pieces.”
Steve Sansweet, president and CEO of the nonprofit Rancho Obi-Wan in Northern California, wrote on his website that from late 2015 through 2016, there were 100 pieces taken from his collection, some of which were then resold.
Shawn M. Prince, 20, of Connellsville was charged this week with retail theft for allegedly loading eight hams valued at nearly $450 into a cart at the Shop ‘n Save on Route 119 in Youngwood and leaving without paying March 27.
Ed Saurs pulled into the driveway of his two-story home on a quiet suburban street in Puyallup, Washington, just after 12 p.m. last Tuesday. Saurs, 58, was there for a business meeting — he was putting the longtime family home up for sale — but he immediately noticed something odd.
The Chevy truck in his driveway didn’t belong to his real estate agent, and through the open front door of his house he could see a young man who he didn’t know standing in the front hallway. So Saurs, a retired Air Force loadmaster, approached him.
“I asked: What are you doing in my house?” Saurs told NBC News. “He said, ‘I’m here to buy the microwave.’ I said, ‘My microwave is not for sale.'”
Saurs discovered that in the couple of weeks that he’d been in Olympia, where he and his wife live full time, someone had broken into his home, slept on a mattress on the floor and undertaken an astonishingly brazen heist, a burglary so casual it could have been an online date: The Saurs’ family belongings — an iPod, a lawnmower, a table saw, the microwave — were currently for sale on Craigslist and another classifieds site, offerup.com.
