A Dayton woman was charged with several offenses for allegedly taking prescription drugs and checks from various homes in Armstrong County.

Samantha Jean Beer, 26, of Dayton is accused of taking two checks from her father, Clarence Herman Watterson Jr., 54, of Ford City. According to a police report, she wrote one check out to herself for $100 and forged Watterson's signature before cashing it at the Armstrong Associates Federal Credit Union in Ford City on May 3. She was accused of taking 20 hydrocodone pills from her father's dresser.

The incident led police to file four counts of theft by unlawful taking, four counts of receiving stolen property and one count of forgery against Beer in District Judge Gary DeComo's office on Oct. 22.

Beer allegedly took four doses of Suboxone from a home on Route 1025 in Wayne Township on Saturday and four doses of Suboxone from an apartment in Rayburn Manor between Thursday and Saturday.

District Judge Samuel Goldstrohm committed Beer to the Armstrong County Jail on Sunday. Bail was set at $15,000.
