Olga’s Store Owner Foils Theft

COUDERSPORT – A would-be thief was allegedly caught red-handed in an attempt to steal several items from both Olga’s stores in Coudersport.

Police say 55-year-old Mary Catherine Coyle, of Lebanon, PA, entered one Olga’s store and took two items valued at $335. Coyle is then accused of traveling to the next Olga’s and taking an item valued at $84.

Police then credit owner John Snyder, 41, of Coudersport, with confronting Coyle, who police say readily confessed to the entire incident; willingly waiting for police to arrive.

Charges will be filed against Coyle in District Court 55-3-01.

    Who in their right mind would steal anything from Olgas?

    What an unkind thing to say. You must be a flat lander.

    Ummm, essie, calling someone a flatlander is not exactly a KIND thing to say. Besides I wouldn’t steal OR buy anything from Olga’s either and I’m a proud PoCo native hillbilly. lol

    Just a small joke. Unless you’re into shawls or crystals or artwork that makes one feel they are on LSD, can’t see being tempted. (Owners are very nice people)

    Flatlander? ouch.
