Posted

Nathaniel Will Strasser, 21, of Lower Paxton Township, waived a Sept. 7 preliminary hearing and is to be arraigned in Dauphin County Court on Nov. 3, according to online court records.

Police said that Strasser has confessed to holding up six convenience stores at gunpoint between Aug. 21 and Aug. 24.

The holdups included Strasser allegedly robbing the Turkey Hill on East Main Street in Middletown on Aug. 22, and the 7-Eleven at the square on Aug. 24, according to court papers filed by police.

Strasser is also charged with holding up convenience stores in Lower Paxton and Swatara townships and in Hummelstown.

He was arrested by Swatara Township police on Aug. 24 and is being held in Dauphin County Prison on $750,000 bail.

Strangling allegations in Royalton

A Steelton man was arrested by State Police after he allegedly strangled a woman during an argument in Royalton on Sept. 1.

Mark Edward Steele, 38, of the 300 block of Spruce Street, allegedly strangled the victim then picked her up by the neck and threw her on the hood of a vehicle, police said in arrest papers filed with District Judge David Judy.

Steele was arraigned before Judy on Sept. 5 and charged with strangulation and harassment. He was placed in Dauphin County Prison on $15,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 28.

Dealing heroin

A Middletown man is in Dauphin County Prison on $50,000 bail after being arrested by borough police on charges of selling heroin.

Acting on information that the defendant, James Lewis Quickley III, was a heroin dealer, police spotted “numerous bundles” of suspected heroin in plain view during a search of Quickley’s vehicle Sept. 4, according to arrest papers police filed with District Judge Sonya M. McKnight.

A search of Quickley’s residence in the 100 block of East Hoffman Avenue turned up more heroin as well as crack cocaine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia, police said.

Quickley, 41, was arraigned before McKnight on Sept. 4 and charged with two felony counts of manufacture, delivery, or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver; possession of a controlled substance, use/possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving while under suspension.

Police said that Quickley was already on state parole for selling narcotics and that he has a “significant criminal history” including three previous felony convictions for selling narcotics.

He is scheduled for a Sept. 28 preliminary hearing before McKnight.
