Upper Dublin police arrested a woman for burglary. Bail set at $77. Find out why

The Upper Dublin Township Police Department has announced the arrest of 33-year-old Dana Reichart of Philadelphia on June 21st. Two residents of Creek Drive in the Ambler section of the township reported a suspicious person on their property. The person looked similar to a person that had been previously captured on a security video stealing from a shed in the neighborhood.

Reichart has been charged with several crimes including two felony counts of Burglary. Overall she was charged with five felonies and eight misdemeanors.

Bail was set at $77. That is an odd number right?

We inquired with Montgomery County about this bail amount to find out what it meant. A spokesperson for the county shared:

A Judge may impose bail at $77 when the defendant also has a probation/parole detainer. Bail cannot be posted on detainers. Setting bail on the newly arraigned case ensures the defendant will get credit for time held on the new charge as well as the Gagnon (probation violation). $77 was selected since it is an obscure amount and will alert the Common Pleas Judge that the defendant has a detainer and does not require a next working day bail review.
