MONTGOMERY – While employed at Shaheen Auto Sales on Route 15 in Clinton Township, 50-year-old Allan Martin Watson racked up more than $6,000 in illegal charges on two credit cards that belonged to the dealership, state police alleged in court papers filed at the office of District Judge Jon E. Kemp.

Watson, of 1507 Mount Carmel St., Williamsport, allegedly misused the credit cards to buy food, cigarettes and gift cards for himself between February and late July 2013, police said.

Following his arraignment last week before Kemp on 41 counts each of theft, receiving stolen property and access device fraud, Watson was released on $20,000 bail.
