Schuylkill County Police Log for 11/30/16

Noise Complaint Incident Leads to Multiple Charged

POTTSVILLE - On Sunday, 11/13/16, just after 8:30pm, Pottsville Police officers were dispatched to 917 Davis Ave. for a noise complaint involving a report that Nicole Marie Porter, 32, East Stroudsburg, was involved and was the subject of an outstanding arrest warrant issued for Schuylkill County Domestic Relations.

On arrival police knocked on the door, and Richard Lee Bealer, 34, New Ringold, verbally answered but did not open the door.

Then Jerome Hranchock, 50, of Pottsville and owner of the home, exited the home while shutting the door behind him. Officers advised Hranchock of the noise and disturbance complaint and he denied that any had occurred. During the ensuing conversation Hranchock was uncooperative with officers and eventually attempted to reach for an item from behind the residence door as Bealer began advancing towards police from the kitchen area with a large blade knife. The knife was removed from Bealer’s possession and officers discovered there was an ax behind the door in the area where Hranchock had been reaching.

While police were still on scene the resident of 915 Davis Ave advised them that a female had just fallen through his ceiling. Officer’s immediately responded and learned the female had fled out the rear of his residence. The woman, later identified as Porter, was eventually captured by Schuylkill County Domestic Relations Officer Robert Phillips and returned to the scene.

Inside the residence of 917 Davis Avenue officers located a large quantity of drug paraphernalia that was easily accessible to all those present. They also learned that Bealer and another person present, Denette Williams, 33, Minersville, were currently being monitored by the Schuylkill County Adult Probation office who, when contacted by police, issued for detainers for each after which they were transported to the Schuylkill County Prison. During a search at the prison Corrections Officers discovered Williams had Heroin hidden in an under garment and she is being charged via criminal complaint pursuant to this as well.

Porter was also transported to the Schuylkill County Prison on her outstanding arrest warrant.

A follow-up investigation at 915 Davis Avenue revealed that Porter had accessed the inside of that home when attempting to flee from 917 Davis Avenue and had fallen through a second floor ceiling to the floor near the top of the staircase. The male resident had heard a crash and saw the female come down the stairs. He attempted to stop her, but was unable to do that so he went outside to contact police.

Criminal Complaints were prepared charging Williams and Bealer with Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Hranchock with Hindering Apprehension or Prosecution and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; and Porter for Criminal Trespass, Criminal Mischief, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

An additional woman encountered inside the residence at the time of the incident, Kristen Marie Petrozino, 30, of Pottsville, was found to have provided police with false information at the scene concerning her identification and she will be charged via Criminal Complaint with False Identification and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

All charges filed with Magisterial District Judge James K. Reilly and pending future preliminary hearings.

Pottsville Police were assisted on scene by officers from the Pennsylvania State Police, Port Carbon, Saint Clair, New Castle, Minersville and Schuylkill County Domestic Relations office.
