Man Who Threatened Mom Waives Hearing

A Ludlow man accused of threatening his mother with a gun and stealing her car has waived his preliminary hearing in McKean County Central Court.

49-year-old Christopher Straneva allegedly took his mother’s car without permission on December 20 and then, after refusing to give her gas money, threatened her with a .22 caliber rifle. Police found him December 22 on a forest service road and arrested him without incident.

He remains in McKean County Jail on $75,000 bail.
