An East Bethany man and Castile woman are accused of taking part in a Wyoming County “mini” crime spree.
State Police charged the two after a reported break-in in Silver Springs, a suspicious situation at McDonald’s in Warsaw, and a report of a man displaying a gun at Save-a-Lot.
It started when a Silver Springs resident reported seeing a man and woman break into a garage attached to her apartment. The pair had fled before troopers’ arrival, but they got a description of the vehicle.
State Police say that a “short time later” a customer at Save-a-Lot in Warsaw contacted police to report a male customer who displayed what appeared to be a handgun inside the store, though it was not threatened.
The Save-a-Lot report came immediately after a suspicious person complaint at Warsaw’s McDonald’s. The pair fitting the Silver Springs burglary description – as well as the car -- allegedly caused a disturbance at the restaurant.
Amber Reinisch, 18, of Castile, and Bradley Jordan, 21, of East Bethany, are each charged with a count of felony burglary as well as petit larceny and criminal possession of a weapon.
Troopers further say that the suspects stole merchandise from Warsaw’s Wal-Mart and the Olympia Sports Store in North Warsaw. At the first alleged theft at Wal-Mart, Troopers say a compact CO2 pistol was stolen, which was later recognized as the weapon at Save-a-Lot.
They were jailed $5,000 bail each.
