Mother and son charged in thefts from construction vehicles

A surveillance sting leads to the arrest of a mother and son on theft charges. Northwestern Regional Police setup surveillance cameras after tools and other equipment were stolen from construction and passenger vehicles over the past several months. The last incident happened on February 18 when a construction van was broken into and various tools were taken.

Last week, police observed as a green KIA Rio sedan pull into a park and ride area off of Route 283 east bound at the Cloverleaf Road exit. The driver, Everett Lee Pack, 37, was observed getting out of the car, and shattering two windows of a construction van. Lois Edna Pack, 76, also got out of the car and helped with the theft. Police moved to take the suspects into custody.

Further investigation has revealed that Everett and Lois Pack were responsible for multiple vehicle break-ins, burglaries and other thefts in Lancaster, Chester, Dauphin and Berks Counties.

Following arraignment the Pack’s were sent to Lancaster County Prison. Police say their investigation continues. Anyone with information about the Pack’s or thefts from vehicles are encouraged to call Northwestern Regional Police at (717) 367-8481.
