NEW CASTLE, Pa.-- Police say they thought a Lawrence County woman might have been overmedicating herself with painkillers until she brought them home video proving her neighbor was stealing her prescription drugs.
Online court records don't list an attorney for 30-year-old Erica Rossi, who has been charged by Shenango Township police with stealing her 66-year-old neighbor's drugs.
Township police say they couldn't find evidence of any break-ins so the alleged victim set up a video camera. Police say it shows Rossi entering the woman's bedroom, where the pills were stolen.
Township officer William Phillips tells says that the victim "went above and beyond. This is something most people wouldn't think of. She did a great job."
