Theft, assault and other charges lodged in district courts

Man faces theft-related charges

Timothy Goodreau, 45, of 2212 Spring Grove Drive, has been charged with felony access device fraud and misdemeanor theft for allegedly stealing Kane McLean’s wallet from McLean’s Ford Focus outside his Loyalsock Township home overnight April 21, state police said. He then used a credit card he found in the wallet to make $582 worth of purchases at several stores, police alleged.. Following his arraignment this week before District Judge Gary Whiteman, he was released on $10,000 bail.

Woman charged after allegedly slashing tires

Stephanie Lynn James, 25, of 1828 Sweeley Ave., has been charged with criminal mischief for allegedly slashing three tires on a Buick Regal owned by Sadie Brown in the 2000 block of West Fourth Street on April 18, city police said. She has been sent a summons to appear before District Judge Christian Frey.

Assault causes possible brain injury

Darryl Eugene Beck, 55, of 1128 Charles St., has been charged with simple assault and harassment for grabbing girlfriend Twila Dodds by her hair, pushing her to the floor and punching her on the right side of her head at the couple’s home about 3:30 a.m. Friday, city police alleged in an affidavit.

Dodds, who was in severe pain, had a large bruise on her head when police and paramedics arrived on the scene. “She was taken to UPMC Williamsport for possible brain and neck injuries,” an officer said.

Following his arraignment hours later before Whiteman, Beck was initially jailed, but has since been released on $10,000 bail.

South Williamsport man charged

Michael Anthony Campbell, 35, of 1101 W. Front St., South Williamsport, was arrested early Wednesday morning after he was caught trying to break into the Montoursville business of Nevills Flowers, 748 Broad St., borough police said.

Campbell removed a window screen and was attempting to push open a locked window about 1:30 a.m., police alleged in an affidavit. Smear marks, believed to be those from hands, were discovered on the window, police said.

Officers were initially dispatched to the Montoursville Area High School on Arch Street to investigate a report of a man “dressed all in black, pounding on school doors. The same man was then seen scaling a fence and entering the football field on the east side of the school,” an officer wrote in an affidavit.

Police responded to the school, but could not find anyone on the property. However, while they were there, officers heard screams coming from Broad Street and responded to the area, where they discovered Campbell allegedly attempting to break into the flower shop. The screams were coming from Campbell himself, police said, adding that it was determined that he was the same man seen allegedly trespassing at the school.

Following his arraignment before District Judge Aaron Biichle on charges of felony trespassing and defiant trespassing, he was initially jailed, but has since been released on $10,000 bail.
