Man wanted for alleged robbery

NEW CASTLE — A West Side man is wanted in connection with an alleged robbery in the McGrath Manor parking lot.

A man reported to New Castle police he had been out with Richard Ward, 50, of 906 Emery St., around 8 p.m. Saturday and Ward had agreed to drive him to the apartment building in exchange for $10.

When they pulled into the parking lot, he told police, Ward told him to give him all his money.

He said he argued with Ward because he was to pay him only $10. He said as he tried to get out of Ward’s truck, Ward grabbed him by the arm and tried to stop him, so he threw $150 into the truck. Ward let go of his arm and drove away.

Ward was charged Monday with robbery, theft and receiving stolen property. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 fell from the sky in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard. Many are speculating that Russian rebels (supported by Vladimir Putin) are responsible for downing the aircraft. What do you think?

Yes. All evidence points that way.
No. Everyone is so quick to point fingers, but there's not enough evidence to support claims of Russian guilt.
I'm not sure. I'll just wait until the investigation is over to make up my mind.
What is up with these Malaysian Airlines planes? I know one airline I won't be flying any time soon...
