If state police catch the vandal who threw rocks at John Reed’s motor home in Lykens earlier this month, the perpetrator could face criminal mischief charges.
Not big news. But state police troopers better have strong handcuffs if they make the arrest.
The accused is Bigfoot, according to the complaint that state police issued Friday morning. The cops description lists the suspect as very large, brown in color and walks somewhat hunched over.
According to Reed, who filed the complaint, a Bigfoot type of creature is responsible for smashing the windows and taillights out of his 1973 Dodge Winnebago.
“It wasn’t a person. I didn’t see any clothes or coat or anything like that,” said the 39-year-old Reed, who is a member of Lykens Valley Sasquatch Hunters. “I don’t think it was a bear, it didn’t move like a bear.”
The incident took place just after midnight along a dirt road off White Oak Road in state game lands in Jackson Twp.
State police at Lykens issued a press release later Friday morning saying they were investigating it as a criminal mischief complaint. When contacted, the trooper said the investigation is not being actively pursued, pending further evidence.
Nor, he said, is Bigfoot likely to menace any area residents — this is the first complaint the state police have received.
But should the Sasquatch in question be apprehended, Dauphin County District Attorney Edward M. Marsico Jr. said his office would prosecute the Sasquatch.
“We have been searching for him for years,” Marsico said with a laugh. “We would be glad to prosecute, assuming the elusive thing is captured.”
