DuBois, PA – Two men are accused of stealing nearly $5,000 worth of wedding gifts from a storage unit.
41-year-old Randy Burress of DuBois and 36-year-old Vincent Siverling of Rossiter are facing burglary, theft, and criminal trespass charges.
Sandy Township Police got a report in early December that someone had changed a lock on a storage unit after taking $4,700 worth of items and extra checks.
Some of the checks were used at Walmart, and police used security footage from there to track down Siverling and an unnamed woman from Grampian. He and the woman led police to Burress, who they say was also involved in the theft.
Many of the stolen wedding gifts had sentimental value, including an heirloom that was given to the victim by her grandmother. Siverling told police he knew where the heirloom was and would return it.
Siverling allegedly told police he stole the items because he needed the money, and Burress reportedly said that he knew they should have turned themselves in to police earlier.
The preliminary hearing for Burress will be Jan. 12, and Siverling’s hearing is scheduled for Feb. 2.
