CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The owner of a Fayetteville, Pa., antique store has been charged with stealing nearly $200,000 from 31 dealers who rented space from him, officials said.
Jeffrey Lewis Brener, 47, of 659 Cumberland Ave., Chambersburg, allegedly sold the dealers' merchandise a year ago and never paid them, according to charges filed with District Justice Larry K. Meminger.
The thefts occurred between July 1 and Dec. 22, 1995, according to court records.
Just before Christmas last year, Brener closed his store, Famous Antiques at 1495 Lincoln Way East, said dealer Chris Marotte of Chambersburg.
