An Ashland man already locked up on theft charges was found to be involved with car thefts in Pottsville.

According to the Pottsville Police, as part of a continuing active investigation, the Pottsville bureau of Police Criminal Investigation Division interviewed Nicholas Riley Harman 25, of Ashland, on Friday 11/17/17.

Upon being informed of several pieces of evidence obtained during the course of the investigation, Harman admitted to stealing two idling, unlocked vehicles within the City of Pottsville on separate occasions.

Harman told officers that he was the person responsible for taking a vehicle located to the rear of 802 West Norwegian St on October 31st as well as a vehicle that had been parked in front of 544 Peacock St on November 9th within the City of Pottsville.

In addition to these acts, Harman also admitted to operating a stolen vehicle that police recovered near the Fairmount Projects on November 8th during routine patrol.

Finally, Harmon admitted to entering numerous unlocked parked vehicles located on Ravine St during the early morning hours on 11/9/17 before stealing the car from Peacock Street.
