St. Clair Township Police reports

Officers responded to Verizon Wireless, state Route 170 for possible fraudulent activity, with employees saying a woman came in asking to add two iPhone 8 Plus items to her account, totaling nearly $1,900. She gave employees a phone number, name and driver’s license with a photo of a Philadelphia resident and, when asked why she was in this area, said she was interviewing with Stanley Morgan. When the employee was in the inventory room getting the phones, a manager told him the woman fit the description of a woman who had tried to fraudulently obtain phones at the Niles Verizon store, so they called police. Officers called the account owner, who said no one had authority to use it. A New York learner’s permit was provided to police by the female customer, naming her as Jasmine Imanuel but she gave her last name as Wright, according to reports. She was arrested for falsification under the name Jane Doe.

n Officers were dispatched to an Annesley Road residence for someone entering who was not welcome, and were told by resident Chelsea Baker she had returned home to find two women she knows leaving her home. She had spoken to them earlier and told them they would have to wait until she came home for them to retrieve some belongings of theirs at the residence. She went to the store and, returned to find them leaving with clothes in their hands. She didn’t believe anything of hers to be missing.

Officers responded to the Smith Oil gas station on East Liverpool Road where an employee, Nathan Blakeley, was reported by customers to be falling down and acting strangely. When asked by officers if he had a problem, Blakeley denied it, saying he didn’t know why anyone would complain. Two hours later, officers received several more complaints about him and returned, asking if he was on any kind of medication or abusing any illegal substance, which he denied. Manager Scott Tanner was called and advised Blakeley that the owner said he needed to go take a drug test in order to keep his job, but Blakely refused and was terminated, according to reports.

n Rachel A. Ansell, 37, Clinton, Pa., was at the traffic signal at state Route 170, and made a left turn onto Dresden Avenue when James C.
