Three area women, all under the age of 20, are behind bars after police said they stole $60,000 in cash from a Greenfeld Township home in September.

Sarah J. Kramer, 19, of Martinsburg, and Kilee N. Frye and Kailey E. Page, both 19, and of Duncansville, were arrested on Jan. 29 after an investigation by Greenfield Township police into the missing money led them to the three women.

According to police reports, sometime during the night of Sept. 21 into Sept. 22, $60,000 kept in a large manila envelope was stolen from a gun safe in the basement of a couple's home along Knob Road in Greenfield Township. The money was discovered missing on Sept. 24 by the couple's grandson.

Greenfield Township police responded to the scene and during the initial investigation noted that there were three different footprints in the dust by the unlocked basement door.

One print belonged to the officer but the other two footprints could not be identified at the time.

One of the investigating police officers also remembered assisting three women who had gotten their car stuck in the mud behind a barn near the house where the burglary occurred.

This event occurred during the time frame in which the victims said the money went missing.

Further police investigation identified Kramer, Frye and Page as the women whose vehicle got stuck in the mud at the time in question.

During questioning, it was revealed that Frye, who was the victim's grandson's girlfriend, along with Page and another girl, visited the home previous to the burglary and that Frye had unlocked the basement door.

According to police, on the night of Sept. 21 into Sept. 22, the women returned to the victim's home. Page and Frye allegedly entered the residence through the unlocked basement door where Frye removed the manila envelope containing $60,000 in cash in $100-dollar-bill denominations from the gun safe.

At some point that night, the three women got their vehicle stuck in a field and called for help. Police responded and then called a tow truck to pull the vehicle out.

After the money was noticed missing, the victim's grandson allegedly received a text from another woman stating that Page was seen spending a large amount of money over that weekend, and that the woman saw a receipt Page had in the amount of $2,000.

Under questioning, Page allegedly admitted that she and Frye were the ones who entered the house and that Frye removed the envelope containing the cash from the safe.

None of the stolen money has been recovered.

All three women were arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Fred Miller, Tyrone, and committed to the Blair County Prison in lieu of $50,000 cash bail.
