Troopers seeking information on man accused of recent car theft in Indiana County
State police in Indiana are seeking the public’s help identifying a man suspected of stealing a car last June from a restaurant parking lot near Indiana.
Trooper Matt Schmotzer said that an employee at Eat ‘n Park on Oakland Avenue in White Township reported that after her shift ended at 5 a.m. June 3, a black male riding a mountain bike approached her and ordered her out of her 2002, two-door Grand Am. Schmotzer said the suspect then put the bike in the trunk and fled in the vehicle.
Trooper Clifford Greenfield reported that the suspect later purchased cigarettes at a BP station in Saltsburg, where surveillance photographs were obtained.
The suspect is described as a black male in his late 30s, approximately 6-feet, 2-inches tall with a medium build.
The car was later recovered in Rankin.
Anyone with information is asked to call state police at (724) 357-1960.
