An attempted scam in Huntingdon County was thwarted last week, thanks to UPS.  According to State Police, an 80-year-old Blairs Mills woman was contacted by phone on June 19th by callers claiming to be her grandson and her grandson’s attorney.  The callers said the grandson was arrested for DUI in Maryland and needed $4,000 for bail.  The victim sent the money via UPS, but alert employees recognized the scam.  UPS contacted the victim and subsequently returned her money.


Authorities are searching for a suspect wanted in connection with a burglary earlier this week in Lewistown.  Borough Police say a witness identified 18-year-old Logan Kinslow when he entered an apartment on Marble Street Sunday afternoon and took a Sony Playstation 4 and several video games.  Another witness identified Kinslow when he returned to the scene and placed the stolen items at the front door and fled with a female companion.  A warrant has been issued for Kinslow’s arrest for first degree felony burglary, along with misdemeanor counts of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.  Anyone with information on Kinslow’s whereabouts should contact Lewistown Borough Police.


State Police will conduct sobriety checkpoints in Perry County beginning this weekend.  The goal of the enforcement program is to reduce the number of impaired drivers on area roadways as well as reduce the number of alcohol and drug related crashes.


The American Red Cross will be in Juniata County for a blood drive Saturday.  The bloodmobile will be at the Juniata County Library on Jefferson Street in Mifflintown tomorrow from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm.
