A dispute between two Wilcox men has resulted in one of them being charged with shooting at the other. Troopers at Ridgway explain Brandon Dilley, 33, went to the home of 34 year James Biel at 1905 Raselass Road last Tuesday night to retrieve personal property. A verbal argument escalated to the point where Biel allegedly fired a gun just passed Dilley’s head. Biel disappeared but a warrant was issued for his arrest and he was picked up last Thursday night., After being arraigned before District Judge Martin, Biel was committed to the Elk County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail.

A Wellsboro couple is being charged with harassment after they allegedly tried to prevent a lawful vehicle repossession last Thursday night at 48 Route 549 in Richmond Township. Daryl Abplanalp, 27, and Jessie Catherman, 24 are facing a charge of disorderly conduct Jonathan Edmonson of Bloomsburg was sent to retrieve the 2012 GMC Sierra.

The investigation is continuing into a fire which destroyed a two-story wood frame house on Hacker Street in Kane Friday morning. Shawn Beimel, 43, was not at home when flames were discovered at around 19:40 am. Damage is estimated to be $100,000. There were no injuries.

A brake problem is said to have caused a one-vehicle accident in Tioga County early Friday morning. Mansfield based state police report Collin Bleiler of Arnot, PA was going west when the brakes system failed, causing the left front wheel to lock up. The 2014Subaru WRX skidded across the Charleston Road and hit a large rock before rolling over a couple of times, finally coming to rest against a utility pole.

Kane-based state police, despite being advised against their new practice by headquarters, continue to leave off the names of drivers and passengers, even when they are 18 or older. A 21 year old Smethport driver has been cited for speeding following a one-vehicle crash last Thursday night on Looker Mountain Trail in Otto Township. Troopers said the driver was not hurt after his Dodge Ram 2500 skidded out of control on the snow covered road on a right hand curve and fishtailed into the opposite lane, went back into its own lane, went off the pavement and struck a bridge rail.

Another crash was reported in that same general area Saturday afternoon. Troopers said 1 29 year old Eldred man was going east on Looker Mountain Trail when his Ford Ranger fishtailed off the road and hit a ditch. The truck became airborne coming to rest upside down.

Both drivers escaped injury in a collision last Friday afternoon on the Prentisvale Road in Eldred Township. State police at Kane said the fender-bender occurred when a 64 year old  Eldred man was traveling west and tried unsuccessfully turn left into his driveway. His Ford F350 hit the rear-end of  an eastbound  Ford Fiesta driven by a 19 year old Coudersport man.
