DICKSON CITY – Police have charged two locals with retail theft, criminal conspiracy, receiving stolen property and theft by unlawful taking for an alleged incident at the Kohl’s department store in Dickson City.
Christine Armezzani, 40, of Archbald, and Brandon Joseph Miller, 23, of Carbondale, face one count each of the aforementioned charges in the alleged April 11 theft.
According to an affidavit:
Police located and followed a Chevrolet Tracker registered to Armezzani at her North Main Street home. When they conducted a traffic stop, the man and woman inside matched a description given to police.
Officers recovered a bottle of Christina Aguilera by Night perfume, which was identified as one of the stolen items.
When the pair was together, they denied any involvement in the thefts that totaled $1,308.93 in merchandise. When they were separated by police, each allegedly blamed the other. Armezzani then admitted to police that the other stolen items were located in her apartment.
Each was released on $7,500 unsecured bail after an April 11 arraignment. A preliminary hearing is set for April 18.
