An Altoona Police Sergeant sits on the Blair County Prison Tonight on a long list of charges. Today we learned more details about how state police say he stole money from them. Sergeant Matthew Starr stole money in several ways. A go fund me page met for a family in need. And from local businesses who wanted to donate their money to the police. He is charged with 10 felonies and one misdemeanor including theft, deception and fraud. "This was an individual case. Mr. Starr used the funds for his own personal use. It had nothing to do with any type of investigation that we are aware of, at the Altoona Police Departments, or otherwise." He remains in Blair County Prison on a $250,000 bail. His hearing is scheduled for May 23.
