Legal troubles continue to mount for a Port Allegany veteran suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

45-year-old Diane Ayala is now accused of charged more than $3,500 on another person’s credit card and the Crosby’s store on South Avenue, Dollar General in Eldred and McKean County E-Sales in Smethport.

She was sent to McKean County Jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.

Last week she was charged by Olean-based state police with stealing $77 worth of merchandise from the Allegany Wal-Mart. All of these happened while she is on probation for confronted three non-American men inside the Bradford McDonald’s in November. In January, when sentencing her to a year of probation and 40 hours of community service, McKean County Judge John Pavlock urged Ayala to avoid further unlawful activity.

In 2012, she was convicted of welfare fraud for receiving nearly $7,000 in medical assistance and transportation benefits.
