EMPORIUM, Pa. (AP) - State police have been investigating thefts reported at a north-central Pennsylvania police station just days after the borough’s police chief resigned.

According to a news release by state police based near Emporium, troopers are investigating the theft of “known items” which police aren’t identifying from the Emporium police station. That’s located in Cameron County, about 140 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

The Bradford Era ( ) reports the items were taken from May until earlier this month.

The borough and state police acknowledged the thefts on Saturday, just says after Matt Siple resigned as Emporium’s chief. He’s not been charged with a crime and could not immediately be located for comment Monday.

State police and borough officials aren’t saying whether or not the chief’s resignation is connected to the thefts.
