18-year-old charged with burglary, trespassing

An 18-year-old man faces burglary and theft-related charges after escaping from Shelter Care in Montoursville, the juvenile detention center to which he had been court-ordered earlier this year, city police said.

During the overnight hours of Nov. 4, Jason T. Dulaney escaped from Shelter Care and broke into a truck owned by Matt Oldt outside Oldt’s home on the 1100 block of Dewey Avenue, stealing various tools, road flares and a flashlight, totaling $185, police alleged in court papers.

On the same day, Dulaney allegedly broke into the nearby K&W Transmission Shop, 1010 Dewey Ave., and stole a jacket, cash from a vending machine and work boots, totaling up to $450, police said.

Dulaney soon was taken custody by city police around 3 a.m. after a woman reported to the police signs of a trespasser at 927 Moore Ave.

Following his arraignment before District Judge James Carn on charges of burglary, felony trespassing, theft and receiving stolen property, Dulaney was released on $35,000 bail and sent back to Shelter Care.
