Franklin PSP Roundup: Troopers investigate a good, clean fight, more

02 February 2024- Pennsylvania State Police say that nobody is facing charges after they were dispatched to a location on Buchanan Trail West earlier this week for a fight. Troopers were called to that location in Peters Township around 1:40pm on January 31st for what was called a “mutual physical altercation”.

Upon arrival at the scene by Troopers, both parties admitted to participating in a physical altercation and both declined to be victims in this incident. As such, nobody has been listed as being charged. No information was given as to the health status of the two people involved, nor their demographics.


A death on Pinola Road in Southampton Township last week had no signs of foul play, according to Pennsylvania State Police. Troopers say they were notified around midnight on January 26th of a death investigation of an 84 year old Shippensburg man.

Troopers say that the death was determined to be a suicide.


Charges do not look like they’re being pressed against a nurse oat a location on Franklin Farm Lane after an investigation by PSP last week. Troopers were initially dispatched around 11pm on January 25th for a report of a resident, apparently a 68 year old Chambersburg woman, being struck by a female nurse.

Through the course of the investigation, it was determined that the alleged assaulter was not actually working on the date of the alleged incident. Therefore, police determined that no crime had been committed, with them ending the investigation there.


A purse with a number of high value items in it looks to have been stolen from a vehicle parked on Siloam Road last month. Troopers say that the 2016 Subaru was broken into on the night of January 12th-13th, with a creme colored Coach purse, valued at $120, being stolen.

Additionally stolen during the incident were the car keys for the vehicle, the victim’s social security card, an Aetna health insurance card, $40 in cash, and a Discover card that was subsequently used on multiple transactions totaling over $100 each. PSP are still investigating this incident.


The public’s help is being asked for following a reported broken window being found in Saint Thomas Township last month. Troopers said they were alerted to a damaged window on January 10th around 7:25pm at a location on Wenger Way. Anyone with information on this incident should contact PSP Chambersburg.
