Police investigate Sukkah Set On Fire

Upper Allen Twp. police are investigating criminal mischief that occurred in the area of Temple Beth Shalom on Allendale Road. Police said that a fire was set to a temporary religious structure known as a sukkot in the yard of the temple. They said a witness reported seeing three or four young males running from the area at 3:15 a.m.

Police said the fire doesn't seem specifically directed at the temple because there was a lot of criminal mischief in the area overnight, including a stop sign removed from an intersection in Mechanicsburg; lawn chairs across the road near the temple; and a flower pot and four fence posts strewn in the 900 block of Allison Avenue.

Police have made no arrests in the incidents.
Anyone with any information can call Upper Allen Twp. police at 717-238-9676.
