Federal jury convicts Beaver County, PA man of running theft ring
A Beaver County man paid people for merchandise stolen from retail stores in Western Pennsylvania and then resold the goods at a popular Ohio flea market, a federal jury decided Tuesday. The jury convicted Terry L. Sempf, 58, of New Brighton of conspiracy and interstate transportation of stolen goods. He faces up to 15 years in prison when U.S. District Judge David Cercone sentences him on Feb. 23. Between 2006 and 2010, the thieves shoplifted DVDs, over-the- counter medicines, personal hygiene products, cosmetics and clothing from area stores, prosecutors said. Sempf paid the thieves for the stolen goods, took the merchandise to Rogers Community Auction in Rogers, Ohio, and resold them, prosecutors say. (Source

A 48-year-old New Jersey man arrested after officials said they discovered $10,000 in stolen goods in his vehicle at the Blue Water Bridge waived his right to a preliminary examination Tuesday.
