gavel new aMONROE TWP., Pa. (EYT) – A man who allegedly stole money from a wallet left on a pharmacy counter at a local store is due in court on Tuesday.

Court documents indicate 37-year-old Benjamin Michael Goodrow, of Ridgway, is scheduled to stand for a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill at 9:45 a.m. on Tuesday, March 31, on the following charges:

– Theft By Unlawful Taking-Movable Property, Misdemeanor 2
– Theft Property Lost Etc By Mistake, Misdemeanor 2

The charges stem from an incident that occurred at the Clarion Walmart in early January.

According to a criminal complaint, around 3:30 p.m. on January 2, a known woman reported a theft to the Clarion-based State Police.

The woman told police she had left her wallet on the counter in the pharmacy department at the Clarion Walmart store in Monroe Township, and after recovering the wallet, she realized that approximately $65.00 was missing.

Trooper Beers of the Clarion-based State Police then spoke with the Loss Prevention team at the store and was able to view video footage from the pharmacy department.

According to the complaint, in the video Benjamin Goodrow was seen concealing the wallet and removing it from the counter. He then left the pharmacy department, walked out of the store, came back inside and dropped the wallet in a different area of the store.

The charges were filed through Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill’s office on Thursday, February 13.
