State Police say a Chicora woman has been charged after she was accused of stealing gifts at a wedding reception last Saturday night.

Investigators say 40 year-old Jennifer Martz was charged after she allegedly stole about eleven cards from a reception table, took them into a bathroom and tried to stuff the cash and checks which had been inserted inside the cards into her bra.

The incident was reported at a grange hall in Chicora.  Reportedly, other wedding guests discovered what Martz was allegedly doing.  Police say she was possession of more than $550 in cash and checks which other guests had included inside their greeting cards.

Martz was arraigned, and was later released on bail from the Butler County Jail.
