Reynoldsville Borough Police have filed charges in several cases that occurred in the borough recently.
According to a report filed with District Magistrate David Inzana’s office, 28-year-old Jesse R. Appleton of East Main Street in Reynoldsville is facing burglary and drug charges
Reynoldsville Police Sergeant Tammy Murray reported she and Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) Special Agent David Farabaugh interviewed Appleton on April 24. During the interview, Appleton allegedly disclosed he had drug paraphernalia in his residence and agreed to turn it over to the officers.
