Police ID man in theft of eggs, money from roadside stand

Suspect is Jeffrey Hoffman, 49, of Boyertown

Pennsylvania State Police are one step closer to cracking an egg-poaching case in Berks County.

An anonymous tip from Crime Alert Berks County identified Jeffrey Hoffman as the man behind multiple thefts of both eggs and money from a roadside stand in Hereford Township over the summer, according to court documents released Tuesday.

PSP investigators said they confirmed Hoffman's identity by comparing a tattoo he was documented as having on his right forearm with one seen on an image recorded by a surveillance camera during at least one of the thefts.

The roadside stand's owner told 69 News that eggs and cash were stolen about twice each week over a period of about a month-and-a-half.

Hoffman, 49, of Boyertown, is being sought on a charge of theft by unlawful taking.

Anyone who knows of his whereabouts can contact Crime Alert via anonymous text to 847411, starting the message with keyword alertberks, or by calling 877-373-9913. A cash reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
