HONESDALE -- A couple accused of stealing a woman's credit cards and cash turned themselves over to authorities in Wayne County.
Robert Doerwald of Forest City and Dawn Hosie of Carbondale were not expecting Newswatch 16 to be at the state police barracks when they arrived.
The couple was there to speak with investigators after a security camera photo aired on Newswatch 16 Friday. It shows Hosie and her fiance on scooters going into the Walmart in Dickson City.
State police say the pair used another woman's credit card and asked for the public's help to identify them.
"I never do stuff like this. I don't know what came over me that day," Dawn Hosie said.
Hosie was upset and wanted to apologize for doing something she says is way out of her character taking full responsibility for the theft.
"I wanted to turn myself in for the girl's charge card I used. And I wanted to tell her how deeply sorry I am. I know I wouldn't want it done to me. I can imagine what she went through knowing it was gone."
According to troopers, a woman lost her purse at the Walmart near Honesdale on January 4. The very same day, the couple is alleged to have used the credit cards in that purse to make purchases at McDonald's as well as another Walmart in Dickson City.
"I feel terrible and embarrassed. I hate myself," Hosie added. "I want her forgiveness because I'm deeply sorry to her. I don't feel brave. I wish I never did it not because I'm caught. I feel like scum."
Troopers tell Newswatch 16 charges are pending against the Hosie and Doerwald.
