Man allegedly gets drunk, flees with car key, gets caught in nearby yard

After “getting drunk on vodka” inside Chad Stutzman’s Montoursville apartment, Turbotville resident Aaron Joseph Crawford fled with Stutzman’s car key, borough police alleged in court papers.

While Crawford was caught 20 minutes later in a nearby yard, police did not say if the key, which was taken from 324 Jordan Ave. on Jan. 8, ever was recovered.

Charged with theft and public drunkenness, Crawford, 31, was arraigned before District Jon E. Kemp and committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of bail.
