Local Man Accused of Trespassing at Redbank Township Residence Waives Hearing

CLARION CO., Pa. (EYT) — A local man who was reportedly found trespassing at a Redbank Township residence waived his hearing on Tuesday.

Court documents indicate the following criminal charges against 59-year-old Theron Walls, of New Bethlehem, were waived for court during a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, March 26, in Clarion County Central Court:

– Criminal Trespass-Enter Structure, Felony 3
– Display Plate Card in Improper Vehicle, Summary (two counts)

He remains lodged in the Clarion County Jail on $25,000.00 monetary bail.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, PSP Clarion was dispatched to a residence in the 900 block of Penn Street in Redbank Township, Clarion County, around 1:40 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, for a report of Theron Walls reportedly taking items from a house with a detached garage.

Troopers arrived on the scene and met Walls on Penn Street near the above-mentioned residence. He was placed under investigatory detention for the report of burglary and criminal trespass.

Walls claimed he had permission from the owner of the property, who resides in Texas. Trooper Nathan Lash informed Walls that the property owner had called in complaints about him being on the property and that he was not allowed to be there.

Walls then stated that the house was going up for sheriff’s sale next month, so he decided to clean it up before he bought it. However, he said he did not buy it yet.

He then admitted that he had been in the house a half dozen times in the last month. Trooper Nash informed Walls that it was not his property and he had no right to be there, and Walls stated he understood.

Walls was asked if he took any items from his house, to which he stated he did not. Upon searching his vehicle, troopers found two PA license plates that did not belong to Walls but were not entered as stolen.

Walls was arraigned on Thursday, March 14, in Clarion County Central Court.
