Car reported stolen: Latanda S. Arnold, 31, of 1105 Park Manor Drive, Monessen, was charged with receiving stolen property after Charleroi Regional police said they watched her get into a stolen car outside MD Bar at 731 McKean Ave. in Charleroi. Police said the car was reported stolen in Pittsburgh, and officers watched her and another woman get into it about 1:30 a.m. Thursday. She was arraigned by District Judge David Mark and taken to Washington County jail on $10,000 cash bond. Police did not identify the other woman.


Two injured: Two people were slightly injured in a two-vehicle accident at 3:38 p.m. Wednesday, township police said. Driver Patricia Milani, 59, of 309 Bellwalt Drive, McMurray, told police she was traveling south on Washington Road when she was stopped for a right turn onto Circle Drive and noticed a vehicle driven by Leo Ganther, 84, of 2818 Oak St., Bethel Park, approaching the rear of her vehicle, police said. Ganther’s vehicle struck the back of Milani’s car. Ganther complained that he was sore, and Milani told police she had pain in her neck and back. There was no indication that either was transported for medical treatment.


Woman arrested: Nicole Giuliani, 36, of Hunters Path Road, was charged with possession of drugs with the intent to deliver and corruption of minors after police learned she was supplying prescription medication to three students who were selling the drug in school, said township police Chief Louis Volle. Giuliani was arraigned before District Judge Maureen McGraw-Desmet Tuesday and placed in Allegheny County Jail. Volle said a teacher noticed a student with pills and notified police Monday. In all, police found three students in possession of a prescription drug that is commonly used to treat attention-deficit disorder, Volle said. Police said they determined Giuliani was supplying the students with the medication.

Benjamin, 26, no address available, faces four counts of retail theft after South Strabane police said he stole more than $1,600 of electronics from Walmart on multiple occasions. Police said Benjamin stole three speakers worth $458 Aug. 13, headphones and speakers worth $579 on Sept. 6 and four Internet routers worth $590 Sept. 23.

Police search for rental car: South Strabane police said they plan to charge Lewis Kameron Johnson, 27, of 621 Beech St., Washington, with theft after he allegedly rented a 2013 Dodge Ram from Enterprise Rent-A-Car Sept. 20 and never returned it.
