A serial burglar seems to be making his way across Pennsylvania, striking at Speedway gas stations.

The Tamaqua Speedway was the latest victim of the lone male. The convenience store was robbed shortly after midnight on July 29.

After reviewing security footage from the Speedway store, located at 307 Center St., Tamaqua, as well as footage from the borough's safety cameras, police have offered the following details.


It's only a medium-size cutting board but I can't find room for it as I walk through my kitchen trying to fit it into a cabinet. It doesn't fit anywhere that makes sense.

I use the board every day so it has to be handy. If only I had a convenient location where it would fit.

Once again I find myself thinking I need more room in my small kitchen. So I take an inventory of my limited space and try to figure out how to get more storage room.
