The document on which a former Centre County paralegal alleges District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller forged Judge Pamela A. Ruest’s signature has been released to police, according to a judge’s order.

The order, dated Thursday and signed by President Judge Thomas King Kistler, states that the original July 18, 2013, bail order must be temporarily released to Bellefonte police for “purposes of examination.”

The document is to be returned to the Centre County Prothonotary’s Office on Monday, the order states.

Bellefonte Police Chief Shawn Weaver said his department has primary jurisdiction over the Centre County Courthouse and other county buildings that fall within the boundaries of the borough.

Bellefonte police have routinely investigated crime allegations and other incidents that have occurred in those buildings, he said.

“Therefore, I will not comment further on the issue, as it is an active Bellefonte Borough Police investigation,” Weaver said.
