A 20-year-old Marysville woman has been charged with criminal mischief after police say she caused more than $4,000 worth of damage to a New Cumberland hotel room earlier this year.

Hunter Rose Mehalick, of Sun Forest Drive, was charged with the misdemeanor offense after Fairview Township Police were summoned to the Red Carpet Inn on the 300 block of Lewisberry Road on Jan. 24 by the hotel manager.

The manager reported that while inspecting a room registered to Mehalick, he discovered it had been completely destroyed. There was damage done to multiple light fixtures in the room, as well as furniture, according to police.

The damage was estimated at $4,137. Mehalick was charged via summons and arrested on Feb. 22, according to a statement by Fairview Township Police.

Mehalick had a formal arraignment before York County Court of Common Pleas Judge Michael E. Bortner scheduled for Friday, according to York Daily Record. The results of arraignment were no available online.

Her co-conspirations include Tyler Alan Sands, 20, of Marysville, and William Gauge Bryan, 22, of Shermansdale. Sands faces a charge of receiving stolen property and Bryan of criminal mischief.

Crime Statistics

Crime declined in the first half of 2018 compared to the first half of 2017, the FBI said in February.
Preliminary statistics show nearly all offenses in the violent crime category declined.

Robbery offenses decreased 12.5 percent, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter offenses decreased 6.7 percent, and aggravated assault offenses declined 2 percent, the agency said. Rape, however, increased by 0.6 percent.

When comparing data from the first six months of 2018 with the first six months of 2017, all property crime categories showed a decrease. Burglaries were down 12.7 percent, larceny-thefts decreased 6.3 percent, and motor vehicle thefts declined 3.3 percent.

The full 2018 crime report will be released later this year.

The FBI previously said that both violent crime and property crime decreased in 2017, the last year that full
statistics are available for, compared to 2016. Overall violent crime decreased 0.2 percent from 2016 to 2017, while property crime decreased 3 percent during that time, the agency said in September 2018, releasing data from the previous year.

“There were more than 1.2 million violent crimes reported to UCR nationwide in 2017. There was a 0.7 percent decrease in murders and a 4 percent decrease in robberies from 2016 to 2017. Aggravated assaults increased by 1 percent in 2017. The FBI began collecting data solely on an updated rape definition last year, and 135,755 rapes were reported to law enforcement in 2017,” the FBI stated.

“The report also showed there were more than 7.7 million property crimes last year. Burglaries decreased 7.6 percent and larceny-thefts decreased by 2.2 percent. Motor vehicle thefts increased by 0.8 percent from 2016 to 2017.”
The figures were compiled from more than 13,000 law enforcement agencies around the United States that submitted their crime data to the FBI.
