Woman Charged with Stealing Packages from Front Porches

A woman has been charged with stealing packages from front porches.

On January 16th, 2017, Ashland police received a call for a report of  someone taking packages off of a porch in the 200 block of West Centre St. in the borough.  A relative of the victim reportedly caught Nicole Neary, 26, of Ashland taking and opening packages that were delivered by mail to the home. The relative knew Neary and immediately called the police and reported the matter. 

The Ashland police have been dealing with a rash of package thefts over the weeks  leading up to this incident.  Neary is currently incarcerated on an unrelat├ęd charge so charges for Theft and Receiving Stolen Property have been filed through Magisterial District Judge Christina Hale's office in Frackville,
