W. Pa. woman stole newspapers for coupons



Published: Thu, March 8, 2012 @ 9:40 a.m.

LEECHBURG, Pa. (AP) — Police have charged a 58-year-old western Pennsylvania woman with stealing newspapers in bulk because she wanted the coupons in the papers.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 58-year-old Linda Altman, of Vandergrift, who did not immediately return a call for comment to her home phone today.

Police in Allegheny Township, Westmoreland County, charged Altman on Wednesday with burglary, theft and related charges for allegedly stealing the papers from a storage shed where the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette drops off papers for a local carrier. They believe she’s stolen about $2,700 worth of newspapers in the last 17 months.

Police say they caught Altman just after she grabbed two bundles of 100 newspapers each on Wednesday morning.

Police Chief John Fontaine says Altman told them “she was after the coupons. I’ve heard of extreme couponing, but not like this.”
