Theft of silver coins

A Waverly man faces the charges the felony charges of burglary and criminal trespass, as well as the misdemeanors of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property, after he allegedly stole $775.95 worth of old silver coins from a South Waverly home he had been hired to do landscaping work at on June 7.

Marshall David Timm, 26, was behind on his rent and sold the coins for $335, according to Sayre Borough police. The person who had made the deal with Timm — who claimed that the coins had belonged to a recently deceased grandfather during the exchange — ended up giving the coins back to the rightful owner.

Timm was arraigned Wednesday before Magisterial District Judge Fred Wheaton and sent to the Bradford County Correctional Facility on $15,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 25.
