A witness said he saw two teenagers set a weather shelter on fire at the Mt. Pleasant, Pa., club by lighting toilet tissue. Police are investigating the incident as arson and the suspects, of whom the witness said he got a picture, have not yet been found.
Two teens who are accused of setting a weather shelter on fire at Norvelt Golf Club are being sought by police, Pittsburgh’s WPXI reported.
Investigators said a witness saw two teenagers setting the fire last week at the Mt. Pleasant, Pa., club. Golf Pro Jeff Mowrer said that while the suspects probably thought they were pulling a prank on the course, the incident is being investigated as arson, WPXI reported.
“Two youngsters on bicycles rode onto the course, took some tissues out of the toilet and lit them on fire,” Mowrer said.
The witness told police he took a picture of the teens and added that he asked them why they set the fire, WPXI reported.
“They told the golfer they were allowed to set the building on fire because their relative owns the course and had told them it would be OK if they lit the building on fire,” Steve Limani, Pennsylvania State Police Trooper, said.
Police have not yet found the suspects, WPXI reported.marketing
