Police probe harassment complaints

May 06, 2005

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Police in Waynesboro responded Wednesday night to cross-complaints of harassment by two West Third Street neighbors, Chief Ray Shultz said Thursday.

The complaints were filed by Craig L. Newcomer, 40, of 117 W. Third St., a Republican candidate for Waynesboro Borough Council in the May 17 primary, and Roy and Marjorie Tressler of 121 W. Third St.

Roy Tressler is the spokesman for Citizens for Sane Development, a local activists group.

Newcomer and Roy Tressler attended Wednesday night's borough council meeting.

Shultz said the Tresslers called police at 6:30 p.m. to complain that Newcomer made a harassing phone call.

Newcomer called police at 8:44 p.m. to complain that Tressler harassed him and tried to instigate a fight outside Borough Hall following the council meeting.

No charges were filed, Shultz said.

"They were just going back and forth," he said.

Shultz said police are listing both complaints as "simple harassment."


The squabble between the neighbors has been ongoing, Shultz said.
