Couple arrested for North Hill break-in

NEW CASTLE — A man and woman have been arrested for allegedly breaking into a house on Park Avenue.

New Castle police charged Thomas R. Allen, 44, of 1 Lower Idlewild Drive, Union Township, and Jennifer Ann Park, 36, of Apt. 2, 537 E. Washington St., with criminal trespass for entering the structure.

According to police, someone reported seeing a pickup truck parked in the driveway of a dilapidated house in the 200 block around 8:30 p.m. Saturday and the couple was seen going inside.

When police entered, they found Park and Allen inside. Park told police she had lived there about two years ago and had gone back with Allen to see if any of her possessions were still inside.

Both were arraigned by District Judge Melissa A. Amodie, who set bond at $1,500 each. Park was committed to the Lawrence County jail. Allen was released on bail.
