Pennsylvania State Police Troop G – ROCKVIEW responded to 2031 General Potter Highway (Best Line Power Sports), Potter Township, Centre County for a theft of $400 in fuel taken on 02/08/20 at 0400 hours.

Through video surveillance a suspect vehicle was developed. The suspect vehicle was a 2001 Tan Dodge Quad Cab with a windshield visor, long radio antennas, a Realtree sticker in the rear window and a black dark colored tool box.

Pennsylvania State Police Troop G – ROCKVIEW responded to 530 Crowfield Road Potter Township, Centre County for a reported burglary of a camp which occurred on 02/10/20 at approximately 0411 hours. The camp was entered, and a 100-gallon propane tank was stolen. A trail camera at that camp captured a suspect vehicle matching the same description of the above fuel theft.

Through communications with the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources it was discovered that there were numerous other camp burglaries that occurred on State Forestry property in the immediate area involving numerous stolen items including guns which are being investigated by DCNR.  With the assistance of DCNR a Facebook post was discovered of the suspect’s vehicle for sale which was linked back to Brandon FOUST. 

A search warrant was served on the suspect’s residence and the stolen 100-gallon propane tank was recovered. The suspect vehicle was also seized. FOUST was interviewed and confessed to these two crimes however there were several other camp burglaries, criminal mischiefs and thefts involving a variety of items including several guns that were reported to PSP Rockview and to DCNR which occurred in the immediate area and during a similar time span.
