NEW CASTLE — An Ellwood City man is wanted for the alleged Aug. 31 break-in at a convenient store on Wilmington Road.

New Castle police charged Shawn Allen Currie, 45, formerly of Farrell, in connection with a burglary at the Red Apple store after matching his DNA through blood samples taken from the scene.

Police had arrived that day to find a rock inside the store and a broken window with multiple blood spots on the glass.

Currie allegedly stole 55 packs of Newport cigarettes.

He was charged Monday with burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and criminal mischief.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
