A 17-year-old Gilbertsville youth has been charged with illegally using six credit-card accounts in an Internet shopping spree, spending thousands of dollars in the past 2 1/2 months, Towamencin Township police said yesterday. The suspect, whose name police are not releasing because he is a juvenile, used the accounts of unsuspecting credit-card holders to buy a laptop computer, two digital video cameras, jewelry and clothing, with a value of $6,000 to $8,000, Towamencin Sgt. Joseph A. Filice said.

You are running down your shopping list, and it's the usual stuff: turkey giblets, a new hearing aid, sweet corn, camouflage hunting wear, allspice, thick steaks, NASCAR collectibles, shoo-fly pie, and a framed poster of Johnny Depp in a bathtub. What you need, you realize, is Zern's Market, the sprawling, weekend-only retailer of most earthly desires in Gilbertsville, Montgomery County. But hasn't Zern's disappeared, another victim of suburbia's onward rush? Many people believe that - so many that customers have been staying away lately, said Joanne Gresh, general manager of the 82-year-old market.

Six days after his 22d birthday, Aaron Marinari was on his way to becoming a criminal. Over the course of four days in April, the former high school honor student from Gilbertsville, armed with his father's revolver, set out to rob two local gas stations. The first robbery went smoothly. But in the second, Marinari nervously poked the gun at a gas station attendant. The pistol went off, police said, blasting the employee in the neck. Marinari fled, leaving behind a bloodied young man. The next day, he was arrested and sent to prison.

Two cops may not sound like a lot, but in New Hanover Township it was one- third of the six-officer police force. On March 9, New Hanover supervisors voted to lay off two officers, saying the township did not have enough money to keep them. Last week, the officers fired back, suing the supervisors in Montgomery County Court. The two - Gregory S. Smith and David Guida, both of Gilbertsville - say they were cut unfairly and illegally. Financial bungling by township officials is the only reason that New Hanover has budget problems, the lawsuit says.
