PSP on the hunt for suspected vehicle thief

(WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — Pennsylvania State Police are looking for Zachary Thompson of Titusville.

According to a press release from PSP, Thompson has multiple warrants for his arrest for three vehicle thefts and one “theft by unlawful taking.” All incidents occurred between January 30 and March 22.

Crawford County Adult Probation also issued a parole warrant for Thompson, according to the news release.

Thompson is a 27-year-old white male, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, of medium build, with blue eyes and “dirty blonde” hair.

The news release says Thompson was charged with the theft of a trailer Jan. 30 in Oil Creek Township in Crawford County.

Thompson was then allegedly observed stealing a blue 2002 BMW 525i on March 13 in Oil Creek Township. The vehicle was later recovered.

On March 17, Thompson allegedly stole a white 2004 Chevrolet 3500 Silverado dual-rear-wheel truck in Oil Creek Township. The vehicle was then used in a gasoline robbery later that day in the city of Erie, the news release said. The vehicle was recovered March 18 in Conneaut Ohio from the residence of Thompson’s girlfriend. Thompson was at the scene in Ohio but fled on foot, evading Conneaut Ohio police officers. Charges against Thompson have been filed in Ohio. Charges are pending in Pennsylvania, according to the news release.

Thompson allegedly stole a white Ford F-450 two-rear-wheel, four-door King Ranch truck with an aluminum bed on March 22 in Troy Township, Crawford County. The vehicle was picked up the next day in Troy Township with an Ohio license plate. The charges are pending further investigation.

“In addition to the above incidents, Thompson is also the prime suspect in numerous other investigations in Erie, Crawford, Venango and Warren counties,” the press release reads. “Interviews with Thompson’s family and friends indicate that he is addicted to heroin and is aware that he will return to state prison.”
