Punxsy teen in court for allegedly breaking into, damaging Pantall Hotel


Punxsutawney, PA – A young man from Punxsutawney will have his hearing today for allegedly breaking into the Pantall Hotel along with five juveniles and damaging the property.

18-year-old Hunter Becker is the only one in the group old enough to be considered an adult in the eyes of the law and old enough to be named on court documents.

Becker faces felony charges for burglary and criminal trespass.

He and the five other young people reportedly were seen by a witness breaking into the Pantall Hotel around Feb. 2.

The group reportedly was seen kicking down doors, using fire extinguishers to damage the building, and breaking out windows.

The cost of the damage has not been estimated at this time.

Becker is scheduled for a preliminary hearing today.
