Guilty Plea in Bingo Bust

By  | 

One of the two suspects in the theft earlier this year of thousands of dollars of bingo tickets has entered a plea.

Glen Streight pleaded guilty Wednesday to receiving stolen property. He's scheduled to be sentenced December 12th.

Streight, and a second suspect, Patty Matheny, are accused of stealing "rip" tickets from the Marietta Shrine Club in May. As part of a plea agreement, Streight has agreed to make restitution to Camp Hervida and Saint John's Parochial School in Churchtown, the two organizations which would have received the proceeds from the sale of the tickets.

Matheny is scheduled to go on trial this Tuesday. Meanwhile, Washington County's grand jury has charged a Belpre man, in connection with a reported "road rage" incident in early October.

As we reported earlier this month, Parkersburg resident was struck by a car in Belpre October 5th, after a confrontation with another driver.

Twenty-three-year-old Mark Hinton Friday was charged with one misdemeanor count of assault, for a series of incidents which began on the memorial bridge.

Walraven had to be hospitalized as a result of the incidents.
