State police at Lehighton reported on two arrests made by troopers in separate incidents.

Troopers said on Monday, April 23, about 6-6:45 p.m. they assisted two officers from Mahoning Township in an attempt to locate a vehicle and a suspect in multiple retail thefts.

The vehicle was located in a driveway at 3058 Mountain Road in Ross Township, Monroe County. Troopers then made contact with Charles S. Poff III, 39, of that address, who was determined to be a suspect in the thefts.

Poff resisted officers and had to be tasered before being taken into custody. Troopers charged him with resisting arrest. The theft charges are being handled by township police.

Troopers said Jason B. Llewellyn, 42, of Gilbert, Polk Township, Monroe County, is facing charges.

Troopers allege that Llewellyn pointed a 9mm semiautomatic rifle at his 17-year-old daughter and threatened to shoot her during an argument over a cellular phone. The incident occurred about 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25, at the residence.

Llewellyn was taken into custody and charged with terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, endangering the welfare of a child, and harassment.

He was lodged in the county prison in Snydersville following arraignment.
