Thieves Steal Safe From Sharpsburg Business

SHARPSBURG (KDKA) — Police are looking for the person who stole a 4,000-pound safe from a local business — using a forklift and pickup truck belonging to the company.

It happened some time after 2:15 a.m. at a warehouse at Thompson Electric along Ali Street in Sharpsburg when the business owner’s son left the building.

According to investigators, the burglar or burglars apparently got into the building through a broken garage door in the back of the building that had been left open.

Officials say the suspects used a forklift at the scene to load the safe into a company pickup truck — adding that both vehicles had the keys left inside.

Aside from the pickup truck used to haul away the massive safe, the suspects got away with at least $9,000 in cash and checks that were inside the safe.

Now police have issued an all-points bulletin for the stolen truck. The vehicle is described as a 2008 white GMC pickup truck with Pennsylvania license plate: YWK-3340.

Anyone with information is urged to call police.

    Do you think this just might have been an inside job? A 2008 GMC has Onstar so why haven’t they found the truck?
