Police probe Greene burglary


FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. - Pennsylvania State police are looking for four people suspected in a burglary Thursday morning in Greene Township.

The report said $300 was stolen from a bedroom at the Spruce Road home of Julian Wagaman, 84, at about 9 a.m. Police said a woman came to the door and Wagaman distracted him and his wife while two men apparently went through the house.

The woman was last seen walking south on Spruce Road with two men and getting into a late-model black sedan driven by a third man. The woman was described as short and heavyset with a dark complexion and dark shoulder-length hair.

The two men she was walking with were both about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with medium builds, according to police. The driver was described as clean-shaven and about 30 years old.

Police seize marijuana plants


WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Washington Township Police Chief Barry Keller said Wednesday his department is looking for the person or persons who were growing marijuana plants that officers recently discovered.

The plants were found growing on the edge of a field of high corn on the Washington Township-Waynesboro line west of the borough of Waynesboro.

Keller said the plants were discovered by happenstance. One of the township police officers set up a random fly-over with a state police trooper in a state police helicopter when the plants were seen.

They had reached heights of over 6 feet street and had a street value of more than $15,000, according to Keller. He said six to eight of the big plants were confiscated by police.
