Man Accused of Stealing from Through, Inc. Office


An Altoona man is awaiting a preliminary hearing for a third-degree felony charge of criminal trespass.

According to police records, on March 10, Clinton Matthew Edwards, 35, Altoona, entered the Through, Inc. building at 2829 Everett Road, East Freedom. Although Edwards was permitted within the building, his access was limited to an area specified for AYSO.

Edwards was captured on video surveillance entering a closed office, turning on the lights and then searching throughout the office. The video footage shows Edwards removing two $20 bills that were previously put on the desk by the person who uses the office.

According to police, Edwards then, with the money in his hand, turned off the lights and exited the office, closing the door behind him.

The video shows Edwards re-entering the unlit office several more times and searching areas around the office and opening desk drawers. A SIM card (smart phone data card) was also removed from the office.

Edwards is being charged with a third-degree felony of criminal trespass and a third-degree misdemeanor of theft by unlawful taking.

A preliminary hearing is set for 9:30 a.m., May 21, at the office of Magisterial District Judge Andrew L. Blattenberger.
