A city man has been incarcerated on two sets of charges, according to court papers filed by city and Pennsylvania College of Technology police

In the first case, Khahl Payne, 20, of 650 Ames Place, illegally entered Chris Nelson’s apartment at 945 Vine Ave. and stole Loralee Lindemuth’s computer tablet and keyboard on April 5, Penn College police alleged.

Payne deleted all of Lindemuth’s personal information from the unit and attempted to sell it, police said. In this case, he is charged with burglary, felony trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.

In the second case, city police have accused Payne of stealing an iPod and several gift cards belonging to Holli Styer from 932 Vine Ave. on March 28. He then sold the iPod to the Newberry Exchange on Diamond St., police said. He has been charged with theft, theft by deception and receiving stolen property in this incident.

Following his arraignment last week before District Judge James Carn, he was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $75,000 bail.
