CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Career & Technology Center’s Truck Driver Training program coordinator is facing theft and related charges for allegedly stealing from the school.
Doug McClellan, 61, of Philipsburg has been charged with one count each of theft of movable property, receiving stolen property and unsworn falsification.
According to Lawrence Township Police Officer Elliott Neeper, he received a report about the theft case Feb. 14 and found that the provided information was “credible.”
McClellan siphoned diesel fuel from a truck that was being repaired at the school. He then took the fuel to a friend’s house, Neeper said.
The school also receives donations, such as motor oil, from local businesses. McClellan was allegedly taking some donations for his own personal benefit.
The total amount stolen was over $1,000, according to Neeper.
