Robert K. Barrett, 29, East Sixth Street, was charged Tuesday morning with burglary and criminal damaging after officers were called to an East Fifth Street residence. They reported finding Barrett walking away to a College Street porch, and witnesses advised he had kicked in the door at a different College Street home and began hitting walls inside with a hammer. Thomas Beaver, the renter of the apartment, told officers Barrett came in demanding money then left and began hitting a Jeep outside with the hammer. A headlight was smashed on the vehicle, with glass lying in the streets, according to reports. There was also damage to the doors and walls of the apartment, officers reported.
Officers responded Monday to the Dollar General for a woman employees said placed an item underneath her shirt. Officers asked Kristen Coleman-Cogar, 19, Lincoln Avenue, if she had anything, she denied it, but when asked to raise her arms, officers reported seeing a tube-shaped item in her waistband that turned out to be eyeliner. She was charged with theft.
Pamela S. Risbeck, 37, Ogden Street, was charged Sunday with theft after employees of the Dollar General in East End reported seeing her on surveillance film shoplifting. Officers reported seeing Risbeck in the passenger seat of a vehicle that pulled into 414 Ogden St. with a lapful of steaks, with two bags of merchandise in the back seat for which no receipt was available. The driver, Brandee Howell, had also been seen in Dollar General but employees only reported seeing Risbeck taking items, according to officers. Wellsville police were notified the steaks were from the Save-A-Lot there in case they wanted to ascertain whether or not they had been stolen.
