Theft of metal, posts alleged

Dale William Erb Jr., 55, of 440 Freedom Road, has been charged with allegedly stealing $25,000 worth of metal railing and $1,000 worth of guardrail posts from Wolyniec Construction on Freedom Road between late October 2012 and early January, city police said.

Following his arraignment before District Allen P. Page III on felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property, Erb was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $35,000 bail. Earlier this year, he was arrested for allegedly stealing tools from a trucking company on Fairfield Road in Fairfield Township.

Also charged in the case involving Wolyniec Construction was Daryle Wayne Erb, 52, of the same address, who was jailed last month in lieu of $15,000 bail. Police did not say how the two men were related.
