Sandy Twp: suspicious behavior, please call dispatch not municipal office

Sandy Township, PA – Residents of Sandy Township called the township police with several reports of suspicious behavior or neighborhood concerns.

In Treasure Lake, a resident said that a suspicious looking man had been seen going into the woods behind her home. She also said she left an envelope for a vendor on her garage door, and the envelope was later found torn open and inside her garage.

In another report, Sandy Township Police were alerted of two teens possibly trying to break into a garage on Juniata Street Extension. Officers were informed by the homeowner that one of the teens was his nephew and that everything was okay.

Sandy Township Police also got a report of a man riding a bicycle with a cart attached and a small child with a helmet in the cart. Although that’s not necessarily unlawful, the caller said the man appeared agitated and they were concerned about it. The man had left before police arrived.

Sandy Township Police say you should feel comfortable reporting any concerns you might have to them, no matter how small.

However, be sure you call the Clearfield County Dispatch Office, not the Sandy Township Municipal Office, especially if the crime is being reported over the weekend. Because someone is not always in the municipal office to answer, it’s important to call a phone number that can connect you with police immediately.

If you need to speak to a police officer to report a crime/incident (no matter how big, small, currently going on, or something that happened in the past), call either 911 or 814-765-1533.
