Jersey Shore man arrested after alleged threats

JERSEY SHORE – A dispute between two South Main Street neighbors on Thursday afternoon landed one man in the Lycoming County Prison, according to the Tiadaghton Valley Regional police.

Kyle Joseph Gildea, 18, of 306 S. Main St., has been charged with terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and harassment after allegedly making threats to the neighbor about noon, police said.

“I will take a brick and smash your face,” Gildea told the victim. “I will slice your throat and end you,” he told the man, police said in an affidavit.

At Gildea’s arraignment before District Judge Jerry C. Lepley, police told the judge that he had moved into the borough just in the last three weeks and they had to deal with him five times.

Gildea was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $5,000 bail.

In another case brought before Lepley on Thursday, Cato J. Randolph, 24, of 1405 1/2 Cemetery St., was arrested on charges of theft and receiving stolen property for allegedly stealing two pieces of outgoing mail from a couple’s Locust Street mailbox about 12:10 p.m., police said.

After he took the pieces of mail, Randolph opened them and removed money that was being sent with two birthday cards, police alleged. The cards were attached with a clothespin to the outside of a mailbox at the home of Paul and Lois Krape in the 1400 block of Locust Street, police said.

Within minutes after the theft, Randolph was nabbed at Locust and Glover streets, police said, adding that a witness positively identified him as the alleged thief. The money was recovered, police said.

Following his arraignment, Randolph, who also was wanted on a bench warrant from Columbia County, was jailed in lieu of $2,500 bail.
