CHESTER COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — The Pennsylvania Game Commission has announced it has reopened a shooting range after it was closed due to the manhunt for Danelo Cavalcante
The shooting range on State Game Lands 43 was closed on Tuesday, Sept. 12. in relation to the manhunt which is ongoing for Danelo Cavalcante, who escaped Chester County prison back on Aug. 31.
The commission stated that the remainder of the Game lands are open. Hunters were advised to be on the lookout for Cavalcante and were asked to take precautions while hunting in the area. Hunters were asked to not leave vehicles and to hide all valuables in vehicles while on the game land.
State Game Lands 43 is in Warwick and Nantmeal townships, Chester County, and Robeson, Union and Caernarvon townships, Berks County.
“We want game lands users to stay safe, and that starts with staying informed,” Burhans said. “While the fugitive’s exact whereabouts are unknown, we do know he recently was in the area of State Game Lands 43, and that’s something hunters and others on the game lands need to take into consideration until new information surfaces or the search concludes.”
