A Souderton woman is charged with two counts of Felony 3 Theft by Unlawful Taking after police say she allegedly stole a parked car from the 900 block of Main Street in Hellertown on the morning of July 3.

In a news release Monday, borough police said Erin Bethany Dunzweiler, 28, of N. Front Street, drove the car into Lower Saucon Township where she was apprehended.

According to court records, Dunzweiler is also charged with one count of Felony 3 Receiving Stolen Property, one count of Misdemeanor 2 Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle and a summary charge of driving on a suspended or revoked license.

Following a preliminary arraignment before District Judge Alan Mege last Tuesday, Dunzweiler was committed to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $50,000 straight bail, the records indicate.

A preliminary hearing for Dunzweiler is scheduled for Tuesday, July 10 at 9:15 a.m. at District Court 03-2-04 in Lower Saucon Township.
