Three Schuylkill County Men Charged with Stealing and Torching Classic Corvette

Three men from Schuylkill County are locked up in Lebanon County Prison after they allegedly stole and torched a classic Corvette in Lebanon County earlier this week.

According to the Pennsylvania State Police at Jonestown, on Monday, March 15th, 2021, around 2:20am, Troopers from the Jonestown Barracks responded to the Twin Grove Campground on Suedberg Road, Union Township, Lebanon County to assist the fire department with a vehicle fire.  The vehicle that was on fire was found to be a 1964 Chevrolet Corvette.

While at the scene, an employee of Joe May's garage, located on Route 72 in Union Township, reported to troopers that their impound lot had been broken into and a blue 1964 Corvette had been stolen.

The next day, Tuesday, March 16th, 2021, Troopers began to conduct an investigation and interviews.  The investigation led them to Michael Workman, 32, of Tremont.  Workman was questioned and admitted to participating and planning the burglary and arson along with Christopher Donmoyer, 21, of Pine Grove, and Bailey Miller, 22, of Pine Grove.

The investigation revealed that Miller and Donmoyer forced their way into Joe May's Garage impound lot, stole the vehicle, then drove the vehicle to the campground where they parked it in the front parking lot and fled.

Workman had followed behind as the getaway driver.

The three returned later and set fire to the vehicle.

All three were charged with Burglary and Conspiracy to Commit Burglary, Theft, arson, and reckless burning.

They were all arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Kim R. Wolfe on Wednesday and locked up in Lebanon County Prison unable to post $25,000 cash bail.
