Man accused of attempted theft
Jeffrey Ryan Weaver, 32, of 1719 E. Third St., has been charged with attempted theft by deception following an incident at Kmart, 1915 E. Third St., about 1 p.m. on April 8, state police said.
Weaver picked up a receipt that had been discarded by another customer and then picked out merchandise that he believed matched in value the total amount on the slip of paper, police said.
Weaver then presented the merchandise and the receipt to a staff member, claiming he was returning the items, police said. Following his arraignment before District Judge Gary A. Whiteman, he was committed to the Lycoming County Prison, but has since been released on $2,500 bail.
