EAST HANOVER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (WHTM) — A truck, tools, and other items were stolen from a garage in Lebanon County on Christmas Eve.
According to Pennsylvania State Police, on Dec. 24 around 1:15 p.m., multiple individuals forced entry into Blatt & Tillett tow and repair garage.
Once inside, State Police say the individuals rummaged through vehicles and stole items and tools from the cars and garage.
The individuals also returned to the business after driving away in a customer’s car and accessed offices where they stole more tools and a large sum of cash, the business owners said.
State Police say the vehicle was later recovered in Lebanon City, and the business owners say they have recovered some of the equipment.
At one of the busiest times of the year, the owners say this is a major disruption to their work.
“We live in Lebanon County, and it’s a safe place to live, it’s a safe place to have a business, and it felt surreal. It felt like, I can’t believe that this was happening and that they were brazen enough to come back two times,” said Josh Tillett, co-owner of Blatt & Tillett Truck & Trailer Repair.
The owners have posted photos from their surveillance cameras to Facebook and are asking for the community’s help to identify the suspects.
One of the suspects is in custody and police are looking for at least three other people. Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to contact State Police at 717-865-2194.
