April 06, 2022 |

By Submitted Report | Posted in: Crime and Police News, Port Vue News

Port Vue police will be targeting abandoned, unlicensed and inoperative cars and trucks marked on borough streets, Chief David Petruski has announced.

“We are striving to maintain a healthly, neat and visually pleasant community here in Port Vue,” he said. Officers are looking for vehicles that have expired inspection stickers, expired registration plates, no license plates, or that are in junk condition, including heavily damaged, rusted out, missing tires and other major components.

Police will be tagging abandoned and junk vehicles with a so-called orange tag and they will be subject to removal, Petruski said. The borough’s junk car ordinance applies to vehicles kept on private property as well as public streets, he said.

The suspects “are searching through the cars and tossing the contents throughout the inside of the vehicle,” Petruski said in a emailed release.

The two-story wood-frame and brick house was reportedly unoccupied at the time, and Allegheny County tax records indicate the property is owned by a West Mifflin man.

What appears to be cleanup work has gotten underway at the former St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church and School in Port Vue, but development plans for the site haven’t yet been revealed.

Port Vue officials have scheduled a zoning hearing for Friday morning to consider a request from the property owner, Yarborough Development Inc., to erect a six-foot fence around the property.
