Police are looking for two teens accused of setting a weather shelter on fire at a Westmoreland County golf course.
Investigators said a witness saw two teens setting a rain shelter on fire at the Norvelt County Club last week.
Norvelt County Club pro Jeff Mowrer said although the teens thought they were pranking the course, the incident is being investigated as arson.
“Two youngsters on bicycles rode onto the course, took some tissues out of the toilet and lit them on fire,” Mowrer said.
The witness told police he took a picture of the teens after he said they set the shelter on fire. The witness also told authorities he asked the two why they set the shelter on fire.
“They told the golfer they were allowed to set the building on fire because their relative owns the course and had told them it would be OK if they lit the building on fire,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Steve Limani said.
Police have not found the teens yet, and are asking anyone with information on the incident to come forward.
