Thefts reported during State High football game in Dauphin County

The State College Area High School football team was the target of an alleged string of thefts Friday night in Dauphin County.

Lower Paxton Township Police Cpl. Greg Sumbury said the thefts happened during a varsity football game against the Central Dauphin East Panthers and State College Little Lions.

The incidents were reported Friday night to Lower Paxton Township police.

“The gist is that someone entered the State High locker room during the game,” Sumbury said.

He declined to say how many items were reported stolen, or specifics of the case. Items reported stolen included cellphones and wallets, Sumbury said.

State College Area School District spokesman Chris Rosenblum said the district is working with Central Dauphin East’s athletic department and the Lower Paxton Township police in the ongoing investigation.
