Lewistown Borough Police warn residents of another scam involving a fraudulent loan company.  Shauntea Black of Goss Terrace told police she was contacted by a company named AFFCEH on March 7th with an offer to consolidate her debt.  Black supplied her social security number and credit card information to the individual.  Her credit card was then charged $1290.  The case has been forwarded to the Federal Trade Commission for further investigation.  Residents are reminded to be very cautious when providing personal information or account numbers over the telephone.  Information pamphlets with tips on how to avoid identity theft are available at the Lewistown Borough Police Station and other police departments.

 

The Equine Center at Grange Park is set to receive $1.5 million from a state economic growth initiative to renovate and upgrade the equine facility.  The money was awarded through the state’s Redevelopment Assistance Capitol Program (RCAP) in 2017, but has only been scheduled for release in recent weeks. RCAPs are designed to assist in the acquisition and construction of regional economic, cultural, civic, recreational and historical improvement projects.  The release of the funds is part of the $3 million expansion project to renovate the equine center by expanding exhibit arenas, adding coverings for existing facilities, and constructing three permanent barns.
