Couple accused of theft waives hearings
Two Cook Township residents accused of taking silver and gold items from a relative's house waived their right to preliminary hearings Friday.
Police charged Crystal Rae Rackowski, 21, and Dylan Andrew McClintic, 24, with theft after reviewing precious metal records from the Treasure Hunt in Latrobe.
State police in Greensburg said the pair seemed “relatively young” to own “such a collection of flatware and silver dishes” that had been exchanged in several visits between July and August for $4,000 at the store.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, an inscription on one of the sold pieces led police to McClintic's relative, who said she had not given McClintic permission to sell the pieces. They were also charged with receiving stolen property and released on $10,000 unsecured bond.
They will be arraigned Nov. 28 at the Westmoreland County Court of Common Pleas.
