Police looking for Titusville woman accused of theft

From staff reports

Police are trying to locate a Titusville woman who is facing charges of theft and obstruction for giving police a false identity.

Sugarcreek Borough police were dispatched Oct. 31 to Sheetz on Allegheny Boulevard for a report of a woman who was in possession of stolen credit cards, police said in a press release.

Sheila Staab, 44, was identified as wearing a Steelers jersey and blue jeans with her hair pulled up, and she was in the bathroom and hadn’t left, police said.

Officers made contact with Staab, who “was noted to be changing” and who said she had the cards and turned them over to the officers, police said.

Staab continually identified herself as Amanda Smith, and she made a written statement and provided a false date of birth, police said.

She was released because “there were no outstanding wants or warrants for an Amanda Smith with that date of birth,” but when officers continued the investigation they learned Amanda Smith was actually Staab, police said.

Staab is facing one misdemeanor count each of access device is unauthorized by issuer, theft of property lost etc. by mistake, false swearing-mislead public servant, false report-falsely incriminate another and obstructing the administration of law or other government function.

There are multiple warrants out for Staab regarding this case and several others, and anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Sugarcreek police at (814) 437-3703, local authorities or 911.
