Troopers charge teen in break-in, car theft

WILBUR – State police from Somerset filed charges Friday against a 16-year-old girl suspected of breaking into a Somerset County family’s home and stealing their car.

The family told police they’ve been targeted by people who break into their Shade Township home and steal things.

On Wednesday, they told police that their car was stolen by a female who crashed it, then returned it moments later.

Judy Faidley told WJAC-TV that the car theft was captured on a neighbor’s surveillance camera.

The video has been turned over to the TV station and the state police.

The girl was charged with burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.

Police said she confessed to the crimes.

Faidley lives in the tiny village of Wilbur. She said her family has been blocking their doors with chairs because of recent break-ins by people who steal and destroy their property.
