Centre County fire crews were called in December when A blaze broke out at a home and spread to an adjacent one along Water Street in Spring Township on Dec. 30. No one was injured as firefighters worked to extinguish the fire, but one home was deemed a total loss.

Bellefonte Charity Fraud

Rossman was accused of failing to follow through on a ham sandwich fundraiser she set up and organized to raise money for the family and stealing hundreds of dollars donated to the cause.

She collected nearly $430 from 32 people, Bellefonte and state police at Rockview wrote in the probable cause charging affidavits.

Rossman, borough police wrote, asked the Fisher’s Markets deli in Milesburg if they could supply the ham sandwiches for the event but never placed an order. The sandwiches were not delivered, and the money was not returned to the donors, police wrote.

Police said they got reports in January that Rossman was selling ham sandwiches for the fire victims and never delivered them on the date she was supposed to.

The family whose home was burned down knew of the ham sandwich fundraiser, police wrote, but did not receive any money Rossman collected before she “left town.”

Police believe she is currently in Virginia, and an arrest warrant has been issued.

Rossman is set to be charged with a laundry list of misdemeanor charges, including 29 counts of theft by unlawful taking of movable property, 28 counts of theft by deception, and 28 counts of receiving stolen property, according to court records.
