Officer stops apparent burglary at Greensburg scrapyard

Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014, 3:12 p.m.
 

A Greensburg police officer on patrol early Thursday morning apparently stopped a burglary at a city scrap yard.

The officer saw footprints in snow at Daniels & Miller on North Hamilton Avenue about 4 a.m. When the officer followed the tracks, he discovered two piles of chrome truck rims, city police said.

An estimate on the rims' value was not immediately available.

“They apparently were going in, taking stuff, and retrieving it later,” Capt. Chad Zucco said.

Police also found nearby an air compressor, a flashlight with “apartment 6” written on it and clothing.

Police have responded to other incidents recently at the scrap yard, Zucco said.

Last month, two men were charged with criminal trespass and other offenses after they allegedly were discovered at the scrap yard.

Anyone with information about the latest incident should call city police at 724-834-3800.
