STEVENS, PA — In a case that dates back to 2019, a South Carolina woman has turned herself in to local authorities over allegations of theft by deception.

On February 16, 2024, the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department (NLCRPD) was informed by Magisterial District Judge Joseph C. Stauffer’s Court that 47-year-old Renee Hope Mills of Summerville, SC, had voluntarily surrendered at the office. Mills was wanted on an outstanding warrant issued in 2019 relating to a case of alleged theft by deception involving a bad check.

Upon receiving the information, NLCRPD officers responded to the location and vacated the arrest warrant. Mills was then transported to NLCRPD headquarters where she submitted to mandatory fingerprinting and photographs as part of the standard booking procedure.

The surrender of Mills brings a new chapter to this long-standing case, which has been pending for over four years. The charges against Mills are serious, but it’s important to remember they remain allegations. In line with our justice system, Mills is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

As we continue to follow this story, further details may emerge that shed new light on the events leading up to Mills’ voluntary surrender. Her actions demonstrate a willingness to face the allegations head-on, a move that will no doubt be closely scrutinized in the upcoming legal proceedings.
