A Tamaqua area man faces multiple charges of harassment after allegedly making repeated phone calls to a Tamaqua businessman.

Larry Wittig, of Tamaqua Transfer and Recycling, contacted police in early January after reportedly receiving numerous phone calls from Anthony F. Chesla, 25, of 135 W. Sherman St., despite a warning from police. Chesla told officers he was attempting to retrieve a check book linked to a joint account he had with Wittig.
