Man Accused of Stealing Ladder from Outside Magistrate’s Office in Reynoldsville Borough

REYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A DuBois man is accused of stealing a ladder that was located outside the magistrate’s office in Reynoldsville Borough.

Court documents indicate that the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 50-year-old Jason W. Jablonski, of DuBois, in Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana’s office.

Police received a report of theft of a ladder from in front of the magistrate’s office on East Main Street in Reynoldsville Borough, Jefferson County, around 6:45 p.m. on September 22.

According to a criminal complaint, a known male and Jason Jablonski parked in front of a property located on East Main Street. Jablonski then exited the vehicle, crossed the street, took the ladder, and put it in the back of the vehicle.

During an interview with police, Jablonski admitted to taking the ladder; however, he said he thought it was his ladder that he left at a residence a while ago when he worked on it, the complaint states.

When the known male drove by the magistrate’s office, Jablonski said that he saw the ladder laying there so he asked him to stop so he could get it.

Police interviewed the known male and he related that Jablonski was helping him clean out a house in DuBois. He stated that Jablonski asked him if he would stop in Reynoldsville so he could pick up his ladder. The known male said he had no idea the ladder did not belong to Jablonski, the complaint indicates.

When police later contacted the known owner of the residence that Jablonski mentioned, the man told police that Jablonski only worked with him on one job, and he did not bring anything with him, according to the complaint.

Jablonski was arraigned at 12:30 p.m. on November 3 on the following charges in front of Judge Inzana:

– Theft by Unlawful Taking – Movable Property, Misdemeanor 1
– Receiving Stolen Property, Misdemeanor 1

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, November 30, at 2:00 p.m., with Judge Inzana presiding.
