A Pennsylvania cop who stole money from a drug dealer and an FBI sting operation was convicted of theft and other charges Thursday.

After less than three hours of deliberation, the jury came back with a guilty verdict on charges of theft, record tampering and lying to federal investigators, PennLive reports.  

Fairview Township Police Officer Tyson Baker, 43, faces up prison time when he’s sentenced at a later date.

Baker was arrested after prosecutors said he stole $2,000 from a drug dealer in November 2015 and $3,000 from an FBI sting operation a month later.

The FBI is on the hunt for two armed women who disguised themselves as nuns and tried to rob a bank in Pennsylvania on Monday.

The bureau said two Hispanic women, armed with handguns, concealed their faces by dressing as nuns in an attempt to rob a bank in Tannersville, Pa.

Police described the suspects are about 5-feet tall with a medium build.

The women demanded money from a teller but fled empty-handed.

Authorities warned that the women are armed and dangerous.

A 37-year search for a fugitive with mob ties wanted in connection with the killing of a Pennsylvania police chief came to a shocking end Friday when authorities announced Donald Eugene Webb’s remains were found buried in his former wife’s backyard in Dartmouth, Mass.

The remains were found Thursday night in the back of a property owned by 82-year-old Lillian Webb, whose former husband, it turns out, died in 1999 while still on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, the Boston Globe reports

The discovery of Donald Webb, a career career with connections to the New England mob, ended the longest cold case involving a slain officer in U.S. history. Webb was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list from 1981 to 2007.

Webb had been charged in the brutal beating and fatal shooting of Saxonburg Police Chief Gregory Adams during a traffic stop in December 1980.

“For almost 37 years, the family of Chief Adams and the citizens of Saxonburg have been awaiting news of Donald Eugene Webb’s whereabouts. The FBI is grateful to have been able to play a role in helping to resolve this case. Although it’s unfortunate Mr. Webb will never be brought to justice to pay for his crimes, we’re hopeful the family can find some closure in knowing that this alleged murderer has been located,” said Harold H. Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI Boston division, CNN reports

A self-described drug dealer told police he killed four young Pennsylvania men and burned their bodies at his family’s farm in suburban Philadelphia.

The Associated Press reports that 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo killed the men because he felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions. 

DiNardo burned the bodies at his family’s farm in Solebury Township and then buried them.

DiNardo confessed and told authorities the location of the four bodies in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, his attorney Paul Lang said.

The FBI’s search for four missing Pennsylvania men helped lead to the arrest of a 20-year-old man connected to the case.

Cosmo DiNardo, of Bensalem, Pa., was arrested Monday and lodged in jail on $1 million bond on a gun charge, according to the Associated Press. 

The FBI, who has not identified DiNardo as a suspect in the men’s disappearance, found the 20-year-old in possession of a shotgun and ammunition, despite a history of mental illness and an involuntary commitment.

The FBI searched for signs of the missing men using heavy equipment at a large property owned by DiNardo’s family.

“The leads are incredibly hot, they’re very fruitful. We’re making great progress, but there’s so much more work to do,” Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said. “We’re not going to rest until we get through every inch of that property.”

The FBI was searching the property because of tips.

One of the men went missing Wednesday, and three others vanished Friday.

Investigators suspect foul play.

“I surely believe there is,” Weintraub said.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly fired back Thursday at Sen. Bob Casey Jr.’s “outrageous” tweets about a recent deportation.

The Democrat from Pennsylvania rallied against the deportation of a Honduran mother and her 5-year-old son.

“Twitter: it’s urgent,” Casey tweeted. “I just found that a young child & mother who came to U.S. seeking refugee will be sent back to Honduras today.”

Casey added: “What I won’t do: stand by silently as a vulnerable child and his mother are sent to their possible death.”

Kelly was not happy, McClatchy reports.

“You can’t pick and choose the laws you follow,” Kelly said Thursday. “I can’t pick and choose the laws I enforce.” 

Kelly added that multiple courts, including the Supreme Court, denied the woman’s stay in the U.S.

Pennsylvania Man Sues ATF Because 40-Year-Old Crime Bars Him from Owning Guns

A Pennsylvania man who is barred from possessing a gun because he was convicted of a first-degree misdemeanor 40 years ago is suing the ATF because he wants to hunt with his grandchildren.

PennLive reports that Terry E. Laudenslager was convicted of buying a stolen television in 1976. A federal law bars him from possession a firearm because he was convicted of a crime punishable by more than a year in prison. 

Since then, Laudenslager has not committed another crime, and now he wants to buy weapons to protect himself and to hunt with his grandchildren.

Last week, he filed a lawsuit against Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the ATF, hoping to win a judgment that will allow him to once again legally possess guns.

The ATF has taken action against a Pennsylvania-based firework company after police found stolen fireworks in an employee’s home during an unrelated investigation.

Zambelli Fireworks was suspended for two weeks and fined $200,000, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. 

“This is a very serious issue that relates to poor record-keeping, not to the strength of Zambelli Fireworks,” Zambelli managing partner Ed Meyer said in a statement. “We are a world leader with strong bookings in 2017.” 

Zambelli said the suspension won’t affect operations because no events ere planned.

The company was founded in 1893 and produces 1,600 fireworks shows nationwide every years.
