Pair charged in theft
Ashley May Bennett, 21, of Canton, faces a preliminary hearing at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 20 before Magisterial District Judge Jonathan Wilcox of Troy on charges of theft by unlawful taking or disposition and criminal conspiracy for an incident that took place around 4:10 p.m. Aug. 4 at the Pump n Pantry store in Canton Township, according to court papers.
The papers note that she is accused of the theft of $200 from the store, and conspiring and agreeing with Joshua Lee Ellenberger, 28, of Canton.
According to court papers, Ellenberger was also charged with theft by unlawful taking or disposition for the theft of the $200, receiving stolen property, and criminal conspiracy.
In an affidavit, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Michael Mislevy noted that Bennett admitted that she did take money, but it was not $200, but less than $100. She stated that Ellenberger told her to go to the back cash register to cash $100 because he was told by the front cashier that they couldn't cash it at the front register.
Ellenberger waived all charges to the Bradford County Court of Common Pleas, according to Wilcox's office.
