A woman took $15,000 and four vehicle titles from the home of a man she was staying with in Armstrong County, state police allege.

State police have issued an arrest warrant for Lisa Wolbert, 51, of Cranberry Township.

According to state police, Wolbert had been staying with a 65-year-old man in Madison Township for the past three months while getting back on her feet.

Police said Wolbert went into his house through a window while he was not home around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday. She went into the man’s safe and took the $15,000 in $100 bills and the vehicle titles.

The man returned as Wolbert was leaving through the front door. She allegedly had a wooden box in her hand with his passport and personal belongings, police said. He made her put the box down and she left. The man did not know that Wolbert had taken the cash and titles from his safe, police said.

State police are charging Wolbert with theft and receiving stolen property.

Anyone with information about Wolbert’s whereabouts is asked to contact state police at 724-543-2011.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
