In the Elk Mountain incident, Troopers say residents from Union Dale, Dallas, South Abington Township, Huntingdon Valley and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as well as skiers from Towson, Maryland and Pittstown, New Jersey found their door locks broken. 20 credit cards, bank cards and gift cards with an unknown total cash limit value and a couple hundred dollars in small cash were taken. Authorities say some of the stolen credit cards were used at Walmart stores in Dickson City, Pittston and Wilkes-Barre, a Target in Dickson City and Wegman’s in Wilkes-Barre.
Damage to the vehicles is put at a minimum of $3,500 just for the broken locks.
