Due to her removing things and other issues, she was asked to leave at the end of August, but she did not leave until the first week of September 2018.

The complaint also notes that the victim went to local establishments that buy items and found that Brenna Baker sold DVDs and tools to a local establishment on June 19, for $35.00. Patrolman Ragon of the Oil City Police Department confirmed the sale with the establishment.

Based on the investigation, the following charges were filed on Friday, November 2, in Magisterial District Judge Andrew F. Fish’s office:

  • Theft By Unlaw Taking-Movable Property, Felony 2
