RPD: 6-year-old found in filthy house with drug paraphernalia



Man faces third-degree burglary charge

Police charged Jim B. Rhorer, 31, Duncannon Lane, on Sunday with third-degree burglary in connection with a theft incident at Walmart.

An officer was dispatched at 6:30 p.m. to Walmart regarding a shoplifting complaint. The officer learned that store employees had detained Rhorer as he attempted to leave the store without paying for $72.70 worth of merchandise, according to the report.

Rhorer had previously been issued a trespass warning and banned from Walmart, the report stated. His entry into the store to commit a shoplifting offense after being banned resulted in the burglary charges being placed against him.

A bench warrant from Scott District Court on a charge of failure to appear was also served on Rhorer.
