State police from Kittanning say they have found a man wanted by the state of Oklahoma on multiple felony and misdemeanor warrants.

Mark Petering, 39, currently of Worthington, is charged in Pennsylvania with a summary count of operating a vehicle without a valid inspection.

That uninspected car led state troopers to stop Petering in Kittanning on the afternoon of June 4, they say in court documents. A search of his name through criminal databases revealed several warrants out of Comanche County, Oklahoma.

According to online records, Petering is wanted for at least 10 counts of issuing bad checks in Oklahoma. That state has requested his extradition, according to police.

Petering is currently housed in the Armstrong County Prison ahead of his extradition hearing, according to police.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
