• DA: Pa. constable stole $2,700 for invalid warrants


    A state constable from western Pennsylvania has been charged with stealing more than $2,700 by billing the county for nearly 150 arrest warrants that were never served.

    Authorities said 49-year-old Constable Timothy Dzugan, of Tarentum, will be notified of the charges by mail.

    The Allegheny County District Attorney's Office said a district judge in Harrison Township stopped using Dzugan to serve warrants after she noticed irregularities in one case last year. That led the judge's staff to review a list of warrants and invoices which Dzugan submitted to the county for payment.

    That DA's office said the review determined that all but three of the 150 warrants reviewed had been recalled, cancelled or previously paid in full.
