Woman allegedly altered prescription
JERSEY SHORE - Carrie E. Miller, 21, of 26 Water St., Salladasburg, faces a felony charge for altering a prescription she was given for the painkiller Percocet, according to Tiadaghton Valley Regional Police.
Miller walked into the Weis Store at 1440 Allegheny St. on June 22 and attempted to obtain a Percocet prescription after she allegedly altered the amount to read 120 pills instead of 20 pills, police said.
Following her arraignment last week before District Judge Jerry C. Lepley on a charge of attempting to acquire a controlled substance with an altered prescription, Miller was released on $10,000 bail.
Philly woman faces theft charges here
A Philadelphia woman was returned to Williamsport last week to face state police charges of theft of leased property and receiving stolen property stemming from an incident two years ago.
Shaven L. Starling, 28, rented a laptop computer from Rent-A-Center, 1907 E. Third St., in late April 2010, but she failed to return the computer or make rental payments, police alleged in court papers.
Police issued a warrant for Starling's arrest in the summer of 2010. It is unknown if the computer was returned to the store. Following her arraignment before District Judge James Carn, she was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $12,500 bail.
