A Philadelphia woman was jailed on burglary and related counts following an incident in Jim Thorpe.

Borough police said on Aug. 22, about 9:45 a.m. they received a complaint of a burglary at 23 W. Front St. that occurred on Aug. 19. The report stated a piggy bank contaning $400 was taken from the home, owned by Dennis McLean. The incident occurred while McLean was away.

A witness told officers they observed Katlin Nicole Frohnheiser, 21, of 1918 Ruan St., Philadelphia, enter the residence through a first floor window. The witness said Frohnheiser was inside the home for about five minutes and left carrying a bag and getting in a white vehicle.

Frohnheiser was located and charged with felony counts of burglary and criminal trespass and misdemeanor counts of theft by unlawful taking or disposition and receiving stolen property.

She was arraigned by on-call District Judge Joseph Homanko, of Weatherly, and committed to the county prison in Nesquehoning after failing to post $10,000 percentage bail.
