Man suspected of not returning rental trucks
A Scranton man faces a misdemeanor after not returning trucks he rented from a company in July, court papers state.
Timothy P. August, 41, was charged by state police at Hazleton with unauthorized use of motor vehicles. Troopers filed the charge Sept. 20 and it was issued via summons, which he accepted Oct. 4.
Arrest papers state August rented two 16-foot Penske box trucks June 23 and did not return them. The trucks were found July 11 — one near 100 Dessen Drive in Hazle Twp. and the other in a vacant lot across from 11 Taramac Road in WilkesBarre. Both vehicles were 10 days past due and had an outstanding balance, troopers wrote.
