Woman arrested for stealing vehicle, man charged with PFA violation

An investigation into a weekend Protection From Abuse violation leads to two arrests.  A 73 year old woman reported to Lancaster City Police that her grandson, Dustin Krammes, 34, came to her home late Friday night and early Saturday morning asking for money. The victim has a PFA order against Krammes, who was also wanted for a  previous violation.  After Krammes second visit, the victim was able to provide a description of a vehicle.

With the help of Lancaster Community Safety Coalition personnel, police were able to locate the vehicle, a green 1993 Dodge Dakota pickup, on camera in the 200 block of Dauphin Street. When officers responded to that location they discovered the pickup had been reported stolen to Northern Regional Police on June 28th.  Krammes was in the pickup along with the driver, Amy Ondeck, who was wanted by Northern Regional Police for Terroristic Threats.

Officers also found Ondeck was in possession of three glass pipes, commonly used to smoke crack cocaine.  Ondeck was found to have unlawfully used a debit card belonging to the owner of the stolen pickup.

Charges against Ondeck include Theft by Unlawful Taking, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Access Device Fraud. Following arraignment she was sent to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $25,000.00 bail.

Krammes faces two counts of Indirect Criminal Contempt for the PFA violations. He was sent to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $50,000.00 bail.
