Two men, in separate cases, have been charged with possessing items allegedly stolen from their employers.
Travis George Fitch, 40, of 230 W. Third St., is charged by city police with receiving tools allegedly stolen in mid-April and belonging to a man Fitch worked for who was identified only as "Bacon."
Fitch was arraigned April 16 before District Judge Allen P. Page III and released on $15,000 bail.
In the other case, state police charged Jerold B. Ross Jr., 21, of 157 Main St., Salladasburg, with receiving a stolen handgun owned by Randy Watson Stryker, of Cogan House Township.
The gun was stolen in early January from Stryker's business, also in Cogan House Township, police said. At the time, Ross was an employee of Stryker's, police said.
Ross brought the gun to Stryker's home in mid-February, claiming he found it under the front seat of his car, police said. However, Lyndsey Walker told police that when she was at Ross' home in January, he talked about "taking a gun from Stryker," according to an affidavit.
Following his arraignment on April 25 before District Judge James H. Sortman, Ross was released on $15,000 bail.
