April 26, 2013
Theft Reported at Jordan Township Business - PSP Montoursville say a trailer was towed from the property of a business establishment in Unityville last month. Trooper Johnathan Buynak said around 4:30 a.m. on March 29, the padlock was cut on the hitch of a trailer parked at 4712 Route 42 highway. The construction trailer was parked parallel to Route 118 at its junction with Route 42, and belonged to Deer View Homes. The thief towed the trailer onto the pipeline in the area of Peterman Road and Route 118 and stole $26,251.30 in tools and supplies. The thief also used black spray paint and tagged the trailer side with graffiti then used 14 gallons of the business's gasoline and 5 gallons of kerosene to douse the inside of the trailer and ground, creating a fuel trail approximately 25 feet in length in an attempt to burn it. The fire burned along the fuel trail but stopped at the opened trailer door, failing to ignite the trailer itself, Buynak said. Anyone with information is asked to contact 570.368.5700.
