Burglary, assault charges withdrawn in separate cases in Piatt Township, city

State police have dropped all charges against Dominic Reynolds, 22, of Lock Haven, according to court records filed at the office of District Judge Jerry Lepley.

Police withdrew multiple counts of burglary, theft, conspiracy and related offenses for his alleged involvement with Logan Pursel in breaking into and ransacking several campers at Susquehanna Campground off of Route 220 in Piatt Township in late April 2015.

While police dropped the case against Reynolds; Pursel, 24, a resident of Limestone Township, has already waived his preliminary hearing on identical charges.

In another case, city police withdrew all charges against Robert Harer 37, related to an incident in the 600 block of Green Street on July 12.

Police dropped charges of terroristic threats, simple assault, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and harassment that were filed after Harer allegedly threatened a woman while brandishing a knife, according to court records at the office of District Judge Aaron Biichle.

In another case, city police withdrew charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct against Kiswana Wright, 29, of 525 Pine St., according to court records at the office of District Judge Christian Frey.

The charges stemmed from an incident in which Wright allegedly confronted Timothy Harris with a knife outside Harris’ home in the 600 block of Fifth Avenue during the early morning hours of Feb. 21.

Judge rejects false imprisonment, other charges for weak evidence

Following a preliminary hearing in another case, Biichle threw out all city police charges against Lamarr Strothers that stemmed from a disturbance at his home at 47 Washington Blvd. on Feb. 19.

Biichle ruled that the commonwealth failed to provide sufficient evidence so he tossed out five counts of false imprisonment, two counts each of endangering the welfare of children and simple assault and four counts of terroristic threats.

Guilty pleas in drug, prostitution cases

In another case, Abby Boss, 28, of 424 W. Fourth St., pled guilty before District Judge Gary Whiteman to a state police charge of prostitution that stemmed from an incident in which she allegedly offered sexual favors to an undercover officer in exchange for $80 in Loyalsock Township on May 12.

Boss made arrangements to pay $1,231 in fines and court costs.

In separate drug cases, Brandi Teneyck, 44, 419 Main St., Jersey Shore, and John Woodward, 51, of 311 Holly St., Ralston have pled guilty before District Judge William Solomon to a charge of possession of marijuana, and each made arrangements to pay $331 in fines and court costs.

Teneyck’s charge stems from an incident at 1920 Green Avenue on Feb. 13, according to Old Lycoming Township police, who withdrew a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Woodward was charged by state police following an incident at his home in McIntyre Township on May 4.
