Police Say Man Used Tow Straps and His Truck to Rip Off Hand Railing

Police are asking for helping ID’ing the suspect.

State Police have released the image of a man they say stole hand railings by ripping them right out of the concrete in front of a Pine Grove area business.

According to information from the Schuylkill Haven barracks, back on New Year’s Day, an unknown man drove his dark-colored pickup truck onto the property at Solar Innovations, along Roberts Rd. in Pine Grove Township.

Police say the truck is a Chevrolet.

The unknown man then attaches that tow strap to a pair of metal hand railings outside the business, gets in his truck and starts pulling.

    Looks like he put his “active” license plate off and “hid” it in the bed of the truck……yet despite that cunning move did not imagine that a business wouldn’t have security cameras covering the entrance.
