State police at Somerset allege that a woman sold an iPad to another woman in Confluence even though she knew that a teenage boy stole it.

The juvenile, whose name was not released, allegedly stole an Apple iPad from a woman's home in Confluence, police said.

Then, Helen Marie Humphrey, 23, of Meyer Street in Confluence, contacted another woman and asked if she was interested in buying the tablet computer for $125, police allege.

The woman paid Humphrey for the iPad, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The iPad was eventually returned to its original owner, police said.

Humphrey is charged with receiving stolen property and theft by unlawful taking. The teen is charged with conspiracy, receiving stolen property and theft by unlawful taking, according to a news release.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled before Confluence District Judge Sandra Stevanus.
