Honesdale officers Leuitenant Witt and Patrolman Swingle responded to Sonny’s Bar and Grill on Main Street on August 26. A male had entered the bar and grabbed three twelve packs of beer valued at $32.00 from the cooler and ran out of the bar without paying. Two patrons chased the thief and stopped him on 5th Street. He was brought back to the bar and police were notified.
Benjamin Grover, 22 years old from Hawley, was arrested for retail theft and public drunkenness. GROVER was issued two non-traffic citations and was released to relatives. A court date is forthcoming.
