The MCRPD Board of Directors announced that the department was using an aggressive driving grant that allowed them to increase the citations.

It was also reported that the numbers will continue to be higher for a period of time because of an additional grant the department was awarded. This new grant will be to help enforce and catch seat belt violations.

A 77-year-old Mifflin man is facing burglary charges after reportedly entering a Juniata County residence and striking a resident.

According to state police at Lewistown, Delmar Zimmerman entered the Milford Township residence at about 2:45 p.m. last Monday. When confronted by one of the residents, a 29-year-old female, he left.

He then allegedly let the air out of the front tire of the second resident’s car, and attempted to take the lug nuts off the rear tire. When the second resident, a 30-year-old female, came home and confronted him, he reportedly “lightly” struck the woman in the face with a steel pipe.

Zimmerman was arrested, and charged with burglary, theft, harassment, criminal mischief and criminal trespassing.
