HAZLE TWP. – Dennis Michael Cosgrove, 28, of White Haven, was charged with theft by deception and receiving stolen property after he allegedly sold goods that did not belong to him, state police in Hazleton said.

Police said Cosgrove entered a storage trailer at 1397 Harwood Road and removed several items including 20 cylinder heads, 50 metal pins, an air compressor and six oil coolers with a value totaling $11,500 on Friday.

On Sunday, Cosgrove arrived at Eastern metal Recycling in a black Ford Ranger and cashed in the metal after signing a form acknowledging that the items were his, even though they were not, police said.

Cosgrove received $186 for the items, police said.

A warrant was issued for Cosgrove's arrest on Monday and he was taken into custody by Freeland police at Hickory Hills. He was transported to the state police barracks in West Hazleton and arraigned by video conference before District Judge John Hasay. He was committed to Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of 420,000 cash bail, police said.
