A woman was being held in the Keough-Dwyer Correctional Facility after stealing electronics and credit cards from a man she met once then using the cards to make a $4,000 purchase from Wal-Mart, said authorities who charged her.

On Oct. 2, a Hamburg man alerted police to a fraudulent purchase at Wal-Mart, Franklin Borough Police said in a news release.

An investigation found that Jonelle A. Pawlyshyn, 30 -- who currently has no permanent address -- stole credit cards and electronics from the man's house, police said.

Pawlyshyn used the credit cards to purchase iPads, air-pods, laptops, baby formula and diapers from an area Wal-Mart, authorities said.

She was arrested in the parking lot of the Sussex Motel in Wangate on Oct. 16 and charged with fraudulent use of a credit card, police said.
