May 23, 1998

Maryland State Police have issued a warrant charging a 20-year-old Greencastle, Pa., man in the theft last month of a $1,700 scale from Jefferson Cheese in Hancock.

Steven Lynn Beaver is charged with felony theft, according to records at Washington County District Court. The maximum possible penalty is 15 years in prison.

The Fisher Model XL-410 gram balance scale was taken from the laboratory, according to court records.

Beaver, a former employee, had returned to the business at 14738 Warfordsburg Road on several occasions to socialize with employees during their breaks, court records said.

Several employees said that Beaver had expressed an interest in the scale while he was still employed with Jefferson Cheese, court records said.
