State police at the Schuylkill Haven barracks have arrested a Pottsville man for theft, alleging he stole money that was part of a fundraiser at a Schuylkill County fire company.

The incident happened back in November at the Independent Hose Company No. 1, East Norweigan Township.

Police arrested Carl W. Martin Jr., 44.

Police said he was a member of the hose company when he forced open a locked office door and stole about $650 from a fundraiser that was in a desk drawer.
