Mount Carmel Township Police Officers Accused of Misbehavior Are off the Job
MOUNT CARMEL TOWNSHIP — Three of the four police officers from Northumberland County who had been accused of throwing a lit firecracker at another officer’s car are off the job for good.
According to Mount Carmel Township supervisors, David Stamets, who was driving the car, was fired Thursday night.
Part-time officers Patrick McAndrew and Michael Pitcavage resigned last month.
Supervisors also said a three-day suspension for patrolman Matthew Filarski will end Friday night.
The police chief said three part time officers were hired after the incident, giving Mount Carmel Township 24-hour police coverage.
