Man Suspected of Stealing PennDOT Truck, Cars Arrested


EDWARDSVILLE – The teenager suspected of stealing two cars and a PennDOT truck within a 48 hour span was arrested in Luzerne County on Monday afternoon.

Authorities said a tip led them to find 19-year-old Thomas McCue in a stolen car at an apartment complex in Edwardsville.

Investigators said McCue is also suspected of stealing a car from Larksville on Saturday night, driving that car to the Poconos and later stealing a PennDOT dump truck from a maintence facility on Route 243 near Tobyhanna early Sunday morning.

PennDOT officials in Monroe County declined to say if the dump truck was locked, or where the keys to the truck were when it was stolen.
