The caretaker of the property at 3091 Provost Rd.—formerly home to the Whitehall Country Club and to Rising Sun Martial Arts—reported at around 11:30 on Thursday that three sheds on the property had been entered into and that approximately 30 feet of copper pipe was missing, Whitehall Borough police Chief Donald R. Dolfi said.
Also, several fixtures from the property's restrooms had been taken.
The caretaker had not been at the site in several weeks, Dolfi said.
The incident is under investigation.
Whitehall Man Charged
Whitehall police responded to the 1600 block of Parkline Drive in the Wallace (Prospect) Park area at around 5:58 p.m. on Feb. 12 for a report of a disturbance, Dolfi said.
When officers arrived at the scene, they encountered James Donald Diesroth, 48, of 1680 Parkline, and were met by Diesroth's profanity and aggressiveness, Dolfi said.
Officers' attempts to calm Diesroth down proved to be futile, Dolfi said, and he was ultimately put into secure holding at the Whitehall police station.
He is being cited with disorderly conduct.
A resident from the 1600 block of Parkline called police at around 8:20 a.m. on Saturday to report that a package delivered to her door had been stolen, Dolfi said.
The victim said that the package was a Valentine's Day gift valued at around $100, but she did not wish to say what was inside of the package.
A FedEx representative reported that the gift was delivered at around 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, Dolfi said, and a Whitehall Place Apartments maintenance worker said that he saw a package leaning against the victim's apartment door that day.
Police are investigating.
Brentwood, Whitehall Men Charged
Whitehall police responded to a report of a fight in the 1600 block of Parkline at around 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, Dolfi said.
When officers arrived at the scene, they were greeted by a man who said that he was involved in the fight. The man had a wound on his left hand but refused medical care, Dolfi said.
Police also found another man involved in the altercation, and both men said that the fight started over insults related to one of the men's heritage.
Charged with disorderly conduct were Askandar Nyair Nyair, 47, of 3045 Pyramid Ave. in Brentwood Borough, and James Baraka, 45, of 1650 Parkline.
