Police in Schuylkill County are currently looking for person who attempted a burglary at a business outside Orwigsburg dressed in a hazmat suit.

Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers obtained a surveillance photo of the suspect who tried to steal an ATV from Schaeffer’s Motorsports, on Route 61 in West Brunswick Twp.

The hazmat suit bandit struck the business between the hours of 1-2:30 a.m. on Dec. 19.

According to Crime Stoppers, once inside the business, the suspect failed to remove the lid on a crate containing a 2022 Cam-Am Outlander XMR 650. However, the clumsy crook damaged a radiator to the ATV in the process.

That apparently frustrated the freebooter who took off from the business on foot, heading toward Carmelo’s Roman Delight along the highway.

State Police in Schuylkill Haven are asking with information about this incident to phone them at 570-754-4600.

Later that night, another business along Route 61 in the same area was also burlarized.

Police say someone broke into a business some time between 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 19 and 10 a.m. on Dec. 20.

No details have been provided on what may or may not have been stolen in that incident.
