Police: Hotel maid took 13 pills from Room 13


Associated Press

INDUSTRY — Police have charge a former maid with stealing 13 painkiller pills from Room 13 at a family-owned western Pennsylvania motel.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 34-year-old Adria Maceross, of Industry, who was charged by Beaver police with stealing the drugs on March 1.

Police say the owners of the Willows Inn on Route 68 contacted them after guests complained about money and prescription drugs being stolen from their rooms last month.

Beaver police Chief Dan Madgar says in the Beaver County Times report that police installed a camera, disguised as an alarm clock, on Feb. 13 in Room 13 to see who was behind the thefts.

On March 1, police say they saw Maceross put a pill bottle in her pocket and say she later confessed to taking 13 pills in it that day.
