Police return runaway youth
On March 3 Mahoning Township police received a report that a juvenile had run away from the Concern Treatment Center on Country Club Road.
The juvenile had been placed at the facility by Bucks County Juvenile Probation.
Several hours later Lehighton police were called to their borough office on Second Street to meet a male wanting to know what to do since he was kicked out of his residence. The male stated he was staying with his aunt in Lehighton and needed to get to his mother's residence in Bucks County.
While he provided a false name to Lehighton police, they were able to identify him as the juvenile who had fled from Concern.
He was taken back to the center by officers from Lehighton and Mahoning.
