Case # 20-0000353
On 01/04/2020 at approximately 2:30am a Lower Paxton Twp. Police Officer observed several individuals acting suspicious in the parking lot of the Best Buy which was closed at the time. Several officers approached the individuals and made contact. The suspects, identified as Carl Shannon and David Destephano, were subsequently arrested after a brief investigation which revealed that they were attempting to saw off and then steal the catalytic converters from the Geek Squad trucks in the parking lot. Shannon and Destephano were transported to Dauphin County Booking where they were charged with Theft by Unlawful Taking, Possession of Instruments of a Crime, Criminal Mischief, and Criminal Trespass.
Recovered from the suspect's vehicle were three large storms grates. If anyone has information on where they belong or any tips which would tie them to a crime, you can report this anonymously on this website or contact Lower Paxton Twp. PD and ask for Ofc. Wertz.
