WILKES-BARRE TWP. – A woman claimed she was coerced into taking part in a burglary at a state police trooper's house and a robbery at an adult night club due to a drug debt her boyfriend owed, according to charges filed.
State police at Wyoming on Wednesday charged Courtney Marie Sadusky, 23, of Bear Creek Township, with criminal conspiracy to commit burglary at the trooper's residence in Laflin on March 23, and robbery, criminal conspiracy to commit robbery, criminal trespass, receiving stolen property and criminal conspiracy to commit theft in connection to the robbery at the Carousel Lounge on Route 11 in Plymouth Township on March 15.
Sadusky was arraigned by District Judge Michael Dotzel in Wilkes-Barre Township and released on $20,000 unsecured bail.
State police are continuing to search for William Gronosky Jr., 29, and Kevin Williams Jr., 29, for their alleged roles in the robbery at the Carousel Lounge. Gronosky is also charged with burglarizing the trooper's residence with Sadusky.
According to the criminal complaint:
A state police trooper assigned at the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino reported his house was ransacked and numerous guns, ammunition and electronics were stolen while he was at work between March 22 and March 23. The trooper had a prior relationship with Sadusky and hadn't talked to her for several months until she called him in March.
While the trooper was at work, he exchanged text messages with Sadusky, who asked if he was at work on March 22-23, the criminal complaint says.
When the trooper came home, he noticed his dog had been placed in a bedroom with a water bowl and the window partially opened.
Sadusky admitted to her alleged role in the burglary, saying she feared Gronosky would harm her and her family. She said her boyfriend owed Gronosky money for drugs, and Gronosky told Sadusky she was responsible for the money, according to the complaint.
Sadusky told state police, according to the complaint, she drove around while Gronosky was inside the trooper's house.
State police allege Sadusky drove the get-away car when Gronosky and Williams robbed the Carousel Lounge at gunpoint stealing more than $3,500, the complaint says.
Gronosky and Williams are persons of interest in a home invasion on Church Street, Hanover Township, on March 26.
Preliminary hearings for Sadusky are scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Gronosky and Williams is asked to call state police at Wyoming at 697-2000. They are considered armed and dangerous.
