A Charleroi woman has been charged with hiding a Monessen man wanted by police in her basement in December.

Samantha Scagline, 21, of 505 8th St., was charged Monday by Monessen police and Westmoreland County Detectives with hindering apprehension or prosecution.

Police allege Scagline hid Antoine Hairston, 19, of Monessen in the basement of her home while he was wanted on attempted homicide and other charges.

Hairston was one of five people charged Dec. 4 with attempting to shoot and kill Jaisen Irwin of Monessen, who they believed was spreading rumors about a murder that occurred on Dec. 3.

While the other four defendants turned themselves in, Hairston did not, prompting an extensive search, police said.

On Dec. 13, Charleroi police received a tip that Hairston was staying at 505 8th St.

Members of the Marshals Fugitive Task Force along with Charleroi police went to the home and encountered Scagline and Nicole Hairston, who were living at the residence. Police said Scagline and Nicole Hairston both said they knew Antoine Hairston. But they said only the two of them and Nicole Hairston's son lived there, according to court papers.

Police asked to search the residence and were given permission. They found Antoine Hairston hiding in the basement, according to court papers.

Monessen District Judge Joseph Dalfonso issued a warrant for Scagline's arrest. No charges have been filed against Nicole Hairston.
