Middleburg Police have charged nine separate juveniles for multiple incidents of burglary, theft, and arson that occurred between November 23rd and December 11th in McClure. Juveniles between the ages of 11 and 14 started several fires causing over $60,000 in damage to a building on Specht Street. Police also investigated burglaries at the Bean Soup Grounds earlier in the month. Authorities also say juveniles were responsible for leaves burning in the roadway on South Stuck Street on November 23rd. Several incidents are still under investigation.
The Middle District of Pennsylvania collected more than $15 million ($15,249,331) in criminal and civil actions in Fiscal Year 2019. The U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, along with the department’s litigating divisions, are responsible for enforcing and collecting civil and criminal debts owed to the U.S., and criminal debts owed to federal crime victims. The law requires defendants to pay restitution to victims of certain federal crimes who have suffered a physical injury or financial loss. While restitution is paid to the victim, criminal fines and felony assessments are paid to the department’s Crime Victims Fund, which distributes the funds collected to federal and state victim compensation and victim assistance programs.
