It may be a stereotype, but …

… most people would probably agree that you don’t come between a cop and his coffee.

The never-sleeping eyes of law enforcement sometimes need to be caffeinated to remain that way.

But a Maryland woman apparently did just that.

Christina Ann Beverly, the former station clerk at the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Loganville, was accepted into the York County District Attorney’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program on Tuesday, March 25, for taking some troopers money and then failing to deliver the joe.

York Area Regional Police warn of phone scam

phone

File – Daily Record/Sunday News

York Area Regional Police are warning residents of a phone scam.

People are receiving phone calls from 717-759-3044, a Glen Rock number, which shows “Walmart” on the caller ID, police said.

The caller has a heavy accent and will ask for the person by name, and tell them that Walmart is offering an extended warranty on their vehicle, according to the news release.

The caller will know the person’s vehicle make, model and year, making it seem legitimate, police said. The caller then tries to get a wire transfer to pay for the warranty.

Police ask that residents do not send anyone money that they don’t know, because it is most likely a scan. Anyone who wishes to report such scams can call their local police department.

Don’t mess with Walmart

Matthew A. Gaspin admitted he didn’t read the fine print.

So, when he got caught shoplifting a TV soundbar from Walmart in West Manheim Township on Aug. 23, 2013, he also got hit with a defiant trespass charge.

It seems that Gaspin, 25, of Gettysburg, had a previous shoplifting charge at a Walmart in Maryland.

Monday in York County court, he told Judge Craig T. Trebilcock that he thought the document he signed then only banned him from that particular Walmart.

It didn’t.

It prohibited him from entering any Walmart for life.

“I should have read it closer,” Gaspin said. “I can’t go into any Walmart in the United States.”

In exchange for his guilty pleas to retail theft and defiant trespass on Monday, Gaspin was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay restitution.

Police release video from I-81 homicide investigation

State police have released a video they hope will help bring witnesses forward in the Jan. 4 homicide on Interstate 81 in Franklin County.

Timothy Davison was fatally shot after just crossing into Pennsylvania. The 28-year-old man from Poland, Maine, was rammed by another vehicle, before that driver then got out and shot him.

“The video is being released, not so much to focus on the suspect’s vehicle, but more so to identify possible witnesses,” said Lt. Adam Kosheba, commander with Troop H in Harrisburg.

Police said they are confident several motorists saw the suspect’s car on I-81 between Martinsburg, W.Va., exit 16 and Interstate 70 in Maryland near exit 10.

“We believe that several motorists traveling in Pennsylvania along Interstate 81 south in the vicinity of Exit 3 observed the victim’s vehicle in the median and possibly the suspect vehicle in the area at the time the homicide occurred,” Kosheba said. “And as you can see in the video, there are numerous vehicles that were driving in that area during the time span of this incident.”

Anyone with information is asked to call PA Crime Stoppers at 1-800-4PA-TIPS. Callers are eligible for a reward of up to $10,000.

Davison’s family is also offering a $10,000 reward.

Editor’s note: To explain the video, police said: It’s a short video of the suspect’s car and other vehicles in the area. The first vehicle you see in the video (traveling left to right; southbound direction on the Interstate) is the suspect’s vehicle. This video is from the Mason Dixon Auto Auction, taken at approximately 2:09 a.m. showing mile marker 3.0 on Interstate 81. This video capture is after the suspect ran Davison off the road and is retuning southbound to Davison’s vehicle, which is stuck in the median, just moments before the fatal shots were fired.
