District Court: Ross Man Waives Burglary, Forgery Charges

Police said Patrick Kasbee forged a check and stole two credit cards.

A Ross Township man recently waived several burglary related charges to court.

Patrick Kasbee, 19, of Tally Drive faces charges of burglary, criminal trespass, receiving stolen property, poossesing instruments of a crime, forgery and unlawful taking.

Franklin Park police received a report on Oct. 17 of a theft from a Sylvan Drive home. Police said Kasbee was staying at a friend’s house where he pried open the parents bedroom and took a check and two credit cards.

He had a friend cash the forged check for $525 through the ATM, but only received $100 while waiting for the entire check to clear. He also used the credit cards at Giant Eagle, Sheetz, 7-Eleven and Hardees.

Tonya Blystone, 24, of Mars, is charged with receiving stolen property in connection with the forged check. Franklin Park police reported Blystone collaborated with two juveniles to cash the $525 check and split the money. Police said Blystone received $140.

Blystone failed to appear for court and was picked up on a warrant.
