Nicholson woman faces burglary charges

BY STACI WILSON

Burglary charges were leveled against a Nicholson woman after she allegedly entered her ex-boyfriend’s Montrose residence and removed items without his knowledge in early December.

In addition to burglary, Faith Bronson, 31, was charged by Montrose Borough Policeman Andrew Genneken criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.

The felony charges before Magisterial District Judge Jeffrey Hollister were bound over to the Susquehanna County Court of Common Pleas.

She was released on $5,000 bail, unsecured.

A formal arraignment was scheduled for Feb. 15.

According to the police affidavit, Garret Yakoski reported his apartment was burglarized and trashed. He told police he had gone to his fiancé’s home on Dec. 3, and returned to his apartment on Dec. 8.

According to a list Yakoski provided to police, missing items included a laptop computer, diamond wedding ring, cash, prescription medication and clothes.

He also told police he thought Bronson was responsible for taking the items.

On Dec. 7, police had been called to the apartment by a neighbor who complained about noise from Yakoski’s apartment.

According to the affidavit, the neighbor identified Bronson as the person she saw carrying boxes from the apartment.

Bronson admitted to police that she did not have a key to Yakoski’s residence and that she did not have his permission to be there.
