The LBPD has filed a criminal complaint against Mark A. PIETSCH, age 47, of Lititz for Altered, Forged or Counterfeit Documents and Plates and Operation of vehicle without official certificate of inspection.
On July 9, 2019 at around 3:20pm an Officer observed a vehicle being driven on North Broad Street in the area of East Main Street. The officer noticed that the inspection and emissions certificates did not appear authentic. Officers then stopped the vehicle in the 100 block of East Main Street, which was being operated by PIETSCH. Officers then discovered that the inspection and emission certificates displayed on the vehicle were counterfeit. PIETSCH was released from the stop and will be summoned to appear in court.
PIETSCH is presumed innocent.
