A police report by Trooper Kyle Hnat, Pennsylvania State Police at Honesdale, says the man went to Tobacco Road on Route 6, Texas Township, where his wife was employed on April 15.

Charges of access device fraud, theft and forgery will be filed.

 Grandma’s credit card
A Shohola woman’s adoptive grandson and his friend are in trouble with the law after allegedly using her debit card to purchase $574.08 worth of merchandise online.
A police report by Trooper Enrico Pascolini, Jr., State Police at Blooming Grove, says the victim’s grandson stole her Wachovia Visa Debit card information, then he and a friend placed four online orders from three companies via computer at Delaware Valley High School.
The incident was brought to the victim’s attention when one of the companies contacted her, saying the shipping address didn’t match the billing address on the credit card. The orders were to be shipped to the grandson’s friend’s home.
When the victim confronted her grandson, he told her what happened and she reported the incident to the state police. A Juvenile Written Allegation was filed on both male juveniles with the Pike County DA’s Office for Access Device Fraud and Criminal Conspiracy to commit Access Device Fraud.
