Roland Riso to Bolivar S. Rexach for $151,000; Foster Township.
Robert A. Bull and Trinell S. Bull to Nescopeck Borough for $185,500; Nescopeck.
The Edwardsville Borough Police Department has entered a cooperative agreement with an area apartment complex to put more police on patrol.
Community Realty Management, Inc., of Pleasantville, N.J., management group that owns both Eagle Ridge and Hilltop apartments in Edwardsville, agreed to pay the hourly rate of $12.46 for each of two officers the borough will be hiring within coming weeks, said Gary Mack, police committee chairman. In exchange, the police department will assign one of the officers to patrol the Eagle Ridge apartments.
At night, Mack said, a total of three officers will be on duty - two patrolling Edwardsville streets and one at the apartment complex.
Mack said the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development doesn't have a lot of security regulations and he and Police Chief David Souchick have been in talks for the last several months to find a way to boost police presence at the complex. He said federally subsidized, low-income housing projects tend to attract crime.
"We've been working on this to make sure what happened in Wilkes-Barre doesn't happened in Edwardsville," he said, referencing the city's troubled Sherman Hills Apartments.
When they approached Sherrie Culver, manager of Eagle Ridge Apartments, with the idea for a cooperative agreement, she took the proposal to Community Realty Management. Culver did not return messages seeking comment. Souchick also did not return messages.
The Edwardsville apartment complexes had a similar venture to ramp up security in 2000 when they were awarded a $250,000 grant by HUD. The salaries of two police officers were subsidized and security cameras were installed at the Edwardsville Apartments, now Eagle Ridge, and Hilltop Apartments, said former Edwardsville Police Chief John Soprano.
The goal in 2000 and the goal with this new agreement are the same: Help prevent crime.
"It is always better to be proactive and aggressive and avoid problems rather than to passively react to them once they occur. I am extremely proud of this positive and practical approach," Mack said.
LOWER MAHANOY TOWNSHIP - Two drivers suffered minor injuries in a two-vehicle crash at 8:37 a.m. Tuesday on Route 147 at the intersection with Route 225.
State police at Stonington said a 2007 Ford Focus, driven by Ralph E. Wert, 86, of Dalmatia, pulled from a stop sign at the intersection of Route 147 and 225 and struck a 2001 Ford Ranger, driven by Henry J. Carl, 85, of Herndon, in the front passenger side.
Wert was treated for a head laceration by Americus Ambulance and was taken to Harrisburg Hospital for evaluation. Carl suffered a minor injury and was treated at the scene. A passenger in Carl's vehicle, Jennie Carl, 82, of Herndon, was not injured.
Police cited Wert for a stop sign violation.
MOUNT CARMEL TOWNSHIP - Calonia E. Rowe, 74, of 566 Pine St., Kulpmont, was charged with driving under the influence, driving on roadways laned for traffic and careless driving following the investigation into a two-vehicle accident on Route 61, near Tomol's Auto Sales, at 11:17 a.m. on Jan. 24.
According to court documents filed by Mount Carmel Township Police Officer Daniel Politza, John Kobilis Jr., of Wilburton, was driving a Ford Explorer north on Route 61 when he observed a silver Ford station wagon, driven by Rowe, cross the center yellow line into his lane of travel. Kobilis told police he attempted to swerve to avoid being hit, but was unsuccessful.
Rowe was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Police were notified Rowe possessed several Fentanyl patches and admitted to taking a Percocet that day.
A blood sample was taken from Rowe at the hospital and tested positive for oxycodone.
The charges were filed with Magisterial District Judge Hugh Jones, of Mount Carmel. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 28.
KULPMONT - Borough police officer Patrick McAndrew charged William R. Cole, 44, currently incarcerated in Clinton County Prison, with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and endangering the welfare of a child following an incident at a Pine Street home March 6.
Police found Cole unconscious in the bathroom, and while EMS tended to Cole, the officer allegedly observed a hypodermic needle, a spoon with burnt residue and three packets believed to have been used to package heroin.
A witness at the scene said Cole's two young children went to the witness' residence and said their father was locked in the bathroom and wouldn't open the door. The witness kicked open a bathroom door and found Cole unconscious.
Cole was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Hugh Jones and was placed in custody on $10,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 16.
UPPER AUGUSTA TOWNSHIP - No one was injured in a two-vehicle crash at 10:17 a.m. Sunday on Route 61 near Klinger Road.

Padlo III, 52, of Sunbury, were both traveling north on Route 61. The Focus was in front of the truck. When Padlo tried to make a left turn into his driveway, Bloom rear-ended the Focus.
No one was injured in the crash, but both vehicles were towed from the scene. Police cited Bloom for failure to drive at a safe speed and for an expired registration on the tri-axle trailer he was pulling.
TREVORTON - State police said a known suspect attempted to purchase a Taurus pistol at Baits, Barrels and Bows, of 229 W. Shamokin St., Trevorton, Oct. 17, but was denied through the Pennsylvania Instant Check System background check. Police said the investigation continues.
