Additionally, she allegedly allowed Anderson to make phone calls from her phone and then deleted them at that time.Anderson eventually turned himself in to state police at the southern border of Pennsylvania and was extradited back to Ontario County to face burglary charges in Geneva.On Friday night, Anderson, 29, was arraigned in court and was remanded to the Ontario County Jail on $100,000 cash bail, and $200,000 bond.
