A Tamaqua woman had her bail reduced after waiving her right to a preliminary hearing before District Judge Stephen Bayer, of Tamaqua, last week.
Jennifer DiPietro, 28, of 230 Green St., was charged with theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property after she allegedly removed jewelry items from a Tamaqua home in December of 2011. The charges were filed by Cpl. Dwayne Hacker.
DiPietro was lodged in the Schuylkill County Prison, Pottsville, on Jan. 18 after she was picked up on an outstanding warrant. Bail was originally set at $25,000, percentage, but was reset to $25,000 unsecured last Tuesday.
Joseph Preston Muse, 22, of 117 Cherry St., Slatington, also waived his preliminary hearing. He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, driving with a suspended/revoked license and driving without rear lights. The charges were filed by Tamaqua Patrolman Peter Wysochansky following a Jan. 14 incident.
Muse was released on $10,000 unsecured bail.
Raquel M. Heckman, 20, of 216 W. Pine St., Mahanoy City, waived a hearing on charges of driving under the influence (DUI) of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving without rear lights. The charges stem from a Dec. 27, 2011, incident and were filed by Rush Township Patrolman Adam Sinton.
