Man Charged In Theft At Sideling Hill Plaza

A 23-year-old Three Springs man has been charged with one count of theft by unlawful taking or disposition by state police at the Everett Turnpike in connection with an ongoing case at the Sideling Hill Turnpike Plaza located in the Hustontown area.

According to state police, Matthew Brant Burkett allegedly took $1,961.71 from the Sunoco located in the plaza between June 3 and August 31. The money was stolen when Burkett would ring up sales on a cash register, cancel the sales transaction and pocket the cash. A total of 279 sales transactions were cancelled by Burkett.

Burkett was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Devin Horne last Wednesday. His preliminary hearing has tentatively been scheduled for Monday, October 18.
