PERKASIE, Pa. - Authorities are looking for vandals who smashed runway and taxiway lights at Pennridge Airport in Bucks County.
The airport president, Rob Brink, said six lights were broken on Sunday night. Airport employees discovered the broken glass on the runway and taxiway early Monday morning.
He said the damage put pilots and passengers at risk. Shattered glass could have punctured the tires of a plane landing or taking off, causing a crash, Brink said.
Vandals have also been climbing down ventilation shafts and drinking alcohol and doing drugs around the top of the 50-foot high tunnel entrance, he said. Employees found empty alcohol containers and drug paraphernalia there.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the vandalism.
Anyone with information should call Pennridge Regional Police at 215-257-5104 or Perkasie Police at 215-257-6876.
The jury in Bill Cosby's assault trial agreed on many points in the case and accepted his accuser's testimony as true, but they remained at a hopeless deadlock because of the confusing wording in the texts of the charges, a juror told CNN.Read More »
