Police: Nesquehoning man took mom’s vehicle

A Nesquehoning man has been charged with stealing his mother’s vehicle.

Sean Christopher McFadden, 29, of Coal Street, has been charged by Nesquehoning police with unauthorized use of a vehicle, theft, receiving stolen property and driving while license is suspended, for an incident that happened on May 12.

According to an affidavit filed by Nesquehoning police, officers received a call that McFadden stole his mother’s vehicle that morning.

The victim reported that McFadden must have hot-wired the vehicle because she has the only set of keys.

A text conversation with McFadden also proved he had the vehicle.

On May 14, the vehicle in question was spotted heading north on Route 209 and officers initiated a traffic stop.

McFadden was detained and the victim said that she wished to pursue charges after noting that she had not seen McFadden, nor her vehicle since he took it, even after another text conversation between the two, which told McFadden to bring back the vehicle.

McFadden claimed he took the car on May 14 with the victim’s permission to go to Redner’s Warehouse Market, but he did not go there.

It was also noted that his driver’s license was suspended.

He was arraigned before District Judge Eric Schrantz in Jim Thorpe and released on $10,000 unsecured bail.

He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing before District Judge Casimir Kosciolek in Lansford on June 3.

McFadden also was cited on April 23 for driving while his license was under suspension.
