A Rocky Grove couple has been charged following accusations they stole from a Mercer County home they were hired to care for following the building’s foreclosure.

James and Ella Baker, both age 33, are charged in Mercer County Court with theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.

The Bakers reportedly were hired to maintain a property in Frenchcreek Township on behalf of a mortgage company.  They are accused of removing approximately $5,000 worth of property that had been left behind by the home’s previous owners.

The couple faces a preliminary hearing next Wednesday.  They are free on their own recognizance.
