A former chef at the Governor's Mansion has been charged with stealing more than $10,000 worth of items, including an autographed Buffalo Bills football, after trying to sell them at a pawn shop in Lebanon County.
WHTM (ABC27 News) reports Michael Yancey, 28, of Jonestown, was arrested Monday after a search of his home turned up stolen silver, six framed photographs, and an NFL Football signed by former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly and addressed to Gov. Ed Rendell, police said.
Investigators told ABC27 that two of the cutlery pieces recovered from the pawn shop in Lebanon had been stamped "Executive Mansion," but were scratched in an attempt to conceal the markings.
They added that an accurate value has not been set for some of the stolen items, including a silver tea set and other property that may have historical or priceless value.
