Heavy Police Presence Descends Upon Mar Lin

Few details available

A heavy police presence descended upon Mar Lin, Norwegian Township, Sunday night.

At 9:45 p.m., fire police were dispatched to this area just outside Pottsville to shut down Fourth St. at Westwood Rd. and Maple Ave. for what was described by Schuylkill County emergency communications as a “police incident.”

Between then and 12:34 a.m. Monday, a stream of marked and unmarked police vehicles made their way toward a scene near the Honeywell facility in Mar Lin.

At about 12:10 a.m., a State Police Bearcat vehicle entered the restricted area and about 20 minutes later, police vehicles began exiting the scene.

A Schuylkill EMS ambulance that had been waiting on standby close to where the road was blocked to incoming traffic along Westwood Rd. left the scene. Fire Police eventually opened the roads into the village.

As of 1:45 a.m., no official word from State Police on what prompted them to Mar Lin or a result of the incident has been released.

We’ll have more info when it’s available.
