Thieves make off with 50-foot-long bridge By Eric Poole Calkins Media Timesonline.com | 10 comments

NORTH BEAVER TWP. — A group of thieves might have set a new standard last week by stealing a 50-foot-long bridge. State police said the bridge was stolen between Sept. 27 and Oct. 5. The theft was discovered shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday.

The bridge, around 20 feet wide, was in a wooded area along a railroad line along the township’s Covert’s Crossing region.

A release by state police did not include the name of the bridge’s owner and Trooper Darren Vizyak, the investigating officer, could not be reached for comment Wednesday afternoon. North Beaver Township supervisor Paul Henry said the bridge was not owned by the municipality and was not to have been used on a township road span.


The bridge was made out of corrugated steel and valued at approximately $100,000. Police said the thief or thieves used a cutting torch to dismantle the bridge where it sat before hauling it away.

Anyone with any information on the bridge theft can contact state police at (724) 598-2211.

By the sounds of it and the fact it took them 8 days to notice that it was missing it was most likely going to sit there and rust away so they were probably doing someone a favor. I just don't see something important thats 50' x 20' taking that long for someone to notice it missing. My .02 Exclamation
