Reynoldsville, PA – It was a long investigation, but police have finally charged a Reynoldsville man for stealing tools from a Jefferson County home.

25-year-old Joseph Alderton is facing felony theft charges for allegedly stealing several tools and a generator from a trailer siting along Vo Tech Road in Winslow Township in September of 2017.

The victim suspected Alderton, so he drove past his home and saw that the generator and stolen tools were sitting outside.

Alderton allegedly admitted to stealing the items and has returned them.

Alderton’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 26.
