Police commended for arrests in home invasion
Friday, June 21, 2013
By Josh Woods Staff Writer
DUBOIS - DuBois City Police Department was commended yesterday for going above and beyond the call of duty during its investigation of recent home invasions.
City Manager John "Herm" Suplizio recognized DuBois PD for its investigation of a home invasion Monday that led to three arrests. Three individuals entered the Grove Place residence, beat up an individual and held them at knifepoint, Police Chief Mike DiLullo said. DuBois City Officer Mike Davidson arrested one of the individuals, and Sandy Township police went with DuBois PD to arrest two others.
Clearfield County District Attorney William A. Shaw Jr. identified the defendants as Eric Britton, 29, of Falls Creek; Jeffrey Sprague, 28 of Verona; and Austin Eheart, 20, of Palmyra, Va. Criminal complaints were filed charging the men with robbery, burglary, criminal trespass, criminal conspiracy, theft by unlawful taking, false imprisonment and receiving stolen property.
Councilmen Randy Schmidt, Ed Walsh and Gary Gilbert commended everyone who volunteered at Community Days and made it a successful event.
Schmidt inquired about purchasing an Automated External Defibrillator for City Park.
A few days after Community Days, someone had a heart attack at the Little League field, Schmidt said. Obtaining an AED for City Park or the community swimming pool would protect the safety of city residents, he said.
The cost of a decent AED device is about $2,000, Code Enforcement Officer Zac Lawhead said. Ambulance companies might be able to obtain grant funding for them, he said.
In other business, council authorized bidding out paving and curbing on Patterson Avenue, Love Street and Lane Street and the parking lot for the Beaver Meadow Walkway Trailhead. The parking lot would be located on the first base side of Showers Field.
Council approved the consolidation of lots on Dock Street at the former Rockwell playground. The property consists of several small lots that would be marketable if combined. Individuals have expressed interest in purchasing the property, Suplizio said.
Councilman James Aughenbaugh and Councilwoman Diane Bernardo were absent from the meeting.
DuBois City Council's next meeting is Monday at 7 p.m. at the city building. The July 4 work session has been rescheduled to July 3 at 4 p.m.
