PENNSDALE – A custodial worker at the Regal Movie Theater at the Lycoming Mall was arrested last week on charges of allegedly stealing a fellow employee’s wallet as well as failing to return two wallets that customers had misplaced in the theater, according to Muncy Township police.

On at least two occasions, Terry Paul Douglas used the credit cards of two of the victims to pay his cable bills and car insurance, police said in court records.

Employed at the theater since mid-February, Douglas, 45, found employee Kayla Russell’s wallet with no intention of returning it on March 7, police said.

Douglas, of 1011 Park Ave., Williamsport, found Gary Emrick’s money clip, which contained credit cards and about $120 in cash, on May 14, police said.

The third victim was Tyler Beaver, who misplaced his wallet on June 26 in the theater, which until recently, was known as The Great Escape.

Following his arraignment before District Judge Jon E. Kemp on misdmeanor charges of identity theft, theft of lost or misplaced property and receiving stolen property, Douglas was committed to the Lycoming County Prison in lieu of $10,000.
