A man reported to Pennsylvania State Police on June 15 that pills had been stolen from his vehicle, and he had last been at the residence of Casey Lynn Stine, 13790 Molly Pitcher Highway, Lot 47, on June 10.

Pennsylvania State Police investigated, and Stine’s wife said he had them in a locked box. Stine let an officer look in the box on June 15. The bottles had the victim’s name on them. Stine was charged with the controlled substance act, receving stolen property, and theft from a motor vehicle. The 23 800-mg Ibuprofen and nine 50-mg Tramadol pills were valued at $32.

On June 15 at 1:42 p.m. police returned to Stine’s residence for a domestic dispute. They found a marijuana plant of top of the refrigerator, and minor bruising on the ribs of Stine’s wife. She allegedly told police they were arguing about missing prescription pills. Stine was charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana and harassment.
