Posted

State Police charged a Londonderry Township woman after she told police she had made up a story about a man raping and strangling her.

Police on May 10 filed a misdemeanor charge of false reports-reported offense did not occur, against Jennifer Marie Russell, 33, of the first block of Crestview Village.

The charge involved an alleged incident Russell had previously told police had occurred in June 2018 at another residence in Londonderry Township, according to arrest papers police filed with District Judge David Judy.

Russell is awaiting setting of a preliminary hearing.

Woman charged for disturbance

Middletown police charged a Harrisburg woman following a disturbance at an apartment building in the first block of Ann Street on May 6.

Valerie Mesaros, 21, of the 1100 block of Loop Drive, had been banned from the building, authorities said.

She ignored warnings that by going inside she was trespassing, police said in arrest papers filed with District Judge David Judy.

Police took Mesaros into custody after using a Taser to bring her under control.

She was arraigned May 6 before District Judge Dominic Pelino and charged with defiant trespass, disorderly conduct, harassment, and resisting arrest.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 20.
