A 59 year old Duke Center woman is facing charges for allegedly making  terroristic threats  at a local business last  weekend.  State police did not release the suspect’s name but claim she threatened to harm three of her co-workers with a gun.

A Portville man is being charged for violating a PFA order on the Oil Valley Road in Otto Towsnhip Sunday morning. The order had been filed on behalf of a 28 year old Duke Center woman.

A charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle is pending against a 37 year old Eldred man. Troopers at Lewis Run allege the suspect “borrowed” a 2008 Mercury  Mariner from a 56 year old Eldred woman August 4 without her permission.

Troopers at Lewis Runny also report investigating the theft of an engagement ring from a home on the North Branch Road in Eldred Township, on August 4.
