An inmate at the Mifflin County Correctional Facility has been charged with making false reports to law enforcement.  Lewistown Borough Police responded to the facility May 3rd for an alleged sexual assault.  Inmate Brett Derck claimed he was inappropriately touched by a corrections officer during a strip search.  Video footage contradicted the account.  When questioned by Police, Derck admitted the false claim because he did not like the corrections officer.


State Police arrested a female driver after a rollover crash April 28th in Huntingdon County.  The crash occurred on Standing Stone Road in Miller Township.  The unidentified driver was transported to UPMC Altoona for treatment and a blood draw.  During routine scans, hospital staff discovered a prescription bottle suspected of containing Xanax pills that were not registered to the patient.  She is being charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to distribute, endangering the welfare of children, and numerous summary traffic violations.
