Crime in the Coal Regions

Harry - This cemetery was about a block from our old home. Crime is getting closer.

TAMAQUA - A burglary that occurred at Odd Fellows Cemetery on Route 209 in Schuylkill Township between 8:15 p.m. Sunday and 9:30 a.m. Monday is being investigated by state police at Frackville.

Troopers said someone removed two red plastic gas cans full of fuel, an orange extension cord and a Toro leaf blower.

The burglars kicked in a door of the maintenance building, entered and stole the items. They also cut a lock on the mausoleum but did not take anything.

Anyone with information is asked to call troopers at 874-5300.
