A Scottdale woman was charged with theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property for allegedly stealing video games and equipment that she later sold.

Nicole Marie Snyder, 20, of 1604 Race St. was charged Jan. 8 before District Judge Ronald Haggerty Jr.

The charges stem from an incident along Moyer Road from Aug. 1 to Oct. 30 where Snyder was staying in a residence and began taking items over time including video game systems, video game accessories and video games.

The woman living in the residence noticed items missing and provided a list to state police at Uniontown.

Police were contacted by the Mt. Pleasant Game Stop loss prevention head, who provided police with a list of transactions made by Snyder between Aug. 24 and Sept. 20.

The items from the transaction were the same ones reported stolen and were valued in excess of $2,000.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for 11:45 a.m. Thursday before Haggerty.

Snyder is free on $10,000 unsecured bond.

Snyder also was charged with shoplifting after allegedly stealing items from Collections by Marty.

Snyder was ordered to stand trial on those charges at a hearing Jan. 9 before District Judge Charles Moore. She is scheduled for formal arraignment Feb. 27.

Also charged in that incident was Cortney Baker, 22, of 110 Miles Road, Connellsville with three counts each of retail theft and criminal conspiracy, two counts of use/possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of driving without a license at District Judge Charles Moore‘s office.

Baker and Snyder stole $889 worth of merchandise from Collections by Marty, police said.

Baker was lodged in prison on $5,000 bail.
