According to court documents, the New Bethlehem Police Department filed criminal charges in Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey C. Miller’s office on January 3 against 19-year-old Sherrie M. Williams, of Grove City.
Officer Hawk, of the New Bethlehem Police Department, began his investigation on November 1 concerning the crimes.
According to a criminal complaint, Officer Hawk was contacted by the victim who reported that someone had poured sugar in the gas tank and threw paint on her vehicle located on Bald Eagle Street, in Sligo Borough, Clarion County, sometime between October 31 and November 1.

Sherrie Williams was contacted regarding the incidents, and she arrived at the New Bethlehem Police Department around 7:00 p.m. on November 5 and was interviewed by Officers Hawk and Clark.
According to the complaint, Williams denied having any knowledge of the crimes.
Officer Hawk explained to Williams that he had video footage of the person committing the acts and that she needed to be completely honest.
Willams consented to a polygraph test.
During the interview on November 5, Officer Hawk told Williams that “it would be a lot better for her if she was honest about the situation.” She allegedly admitted that she had done it, it was out of anger, and she had to get back at her (the victim), the complaint states.

The total damage amounted to $800.00.
