Tamaqua Police were called to the old Anchor Deep warehouse, located on West Spruce Street in Tamaqua, Saturday after an alert passerby heard strange noises coming from inside the building.

When Police arrived, they searched the building and discovered Frederick Andrew Postie, 40, of 626 Fairview St., Hometown, working on his vehicle.

Police said Postie was trespassing and didn't have permission to be inside the building. Postie was also found to have an outstanding warrant for his arrest from the St. Clair Police Department for retail theft and conspiracy to commit retail theft, involving over $6,000 in merchandise, that occurred July 24 at 4:40 a.m. at the St. Clair Wal-Mart.

Postie was arraigned before District Judge Anthony Kilker, Shenandoah, and is currently in the Schuylkill County prison, unable to post the $5,000 straight cash bail. St. Clair Police worked with both Tamaqua and Rush Township Police in the investigation.
