2 trucks stolen from Upper Bucks Co. Farm, police say
Recent reports of unrelated robberies at farms or farms in southern Lehigh County and upper Bucks County currently have State Police investigators working overtime.
Pennsylvania State Police in Dublin said this week they are investigating the theft of two pickup trucks from an upper Bucks County farm last month.
In an October 11 news release, police said a white 2014 Chevy Silverado and a black 2016 Chevy Silverado were stolen from Windy Springs Farm on Myers Road in Milford Township on the morning of September 19.
Police said the trucks were “stolen from the property overnight”.
A subsequent investigation led to the recovery of one of the stolen vehicles in Camden, NJ, police said.
The report lists two other vehicles – a 2011 Chevy Silverado and a 2015 GM Sierra – as being “involved” in the case.
Soldiers said their investigation into the case is continuing.
Meanwhile, Lehigh County State Police are also involved in an investigation into a robbery at a local farm.
Hausman fruit farm on Limeport Pike in Lower Milford Township shared surveillance footage of several individuals they believe stole items from their stall on Wednesday evening.
“The people pictured … have decided to use our products and items that we have in our store,” the farm said in a Facebook post that later went viral. “They removed several cases of inventory and several other items from the shelves without paying.”
The Hausman Farm Stand operates with an honor system in place, so customers are required to leave payment behind for any items they pick up.
“We hate to see such a good thing being exploited and coming to an end,” the post said. “We hope that with everyone’s help, we can catch those responsible for this.”
Hausman Fruit Farm has asked anyone with information about the individuals depicted in the security footage to contact the farm and/or the Pennsylvania State Police in Fogelsville by calling 610-395-1438.
Channel 69 News subsequently reported that a person claiming to be the woman in the security photos posted a comment on Hausman Fruit Farm’s post about the incident in which she claimed there had been a misunderstanding and that she had left a note explaining that she would pay for the items later.
The news station reported that the woman also claimed she donated the farm produce to a church in Catasauqua, which confirmed receiving a donation.
His comment was apparently later deleted from the thread, which as of 1 p.m. Thursday contained more than 200 comments.
More information about them can be found on their social media sites and websites.
