Dilts is accused of crashing a stolen Nissan around Gamble Road and Germany Lutheran Cemetery Road in West Wheatfield Township around 5:30 p.m. According to police, Dilts then walked up to a house on Roy Boring Road and found a man walking his dog.
He then allegedly pointed a stolen .22 caliber rifle at the victim, demanding the victim hand over his car.
That’s when police say the victim disarmed Dilts and threw him to the ground. Dilts later fled on foot, leaving the stolen rifle at the residence.
