YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A Honey Brook man drove into new Harley-Davidson motorcycles, ran a forklift off a loading dock, and caused other damage expected to top $500,000 at a York County trucking business were he was supposed to plow snow, police said.
Robert W. Fisher, 25, also drove a jockey truck directly at an employee, causing the man to fear for his safety and escape through a doorway to avoid getting struck, Northern York County Regional police said.
Fisher went to Crane Trucking, in the 200 block of Cross Farm Lane in Conewago Township, on Sunday evening to plow snow on the lot, but instead, police said he entered the warehouse and drove the jockey truck into numerous motorcycles that were at the business for shipment. He then drove toward the employee and nearly struck a second worker who was investigating the commotion.
Police said security video captured the entire incident, including Fisher jumping from the forklift as he drove it through an open bay door and sent it over the loading dock.
The jockey truck, forklift, dozens of motorcycles, and numerous parts of the building are damaged. In the criminal complaint, police said the $500,000 in damage was a rough estimate and the true amount would take several days to determine.
The complaint did not provide a motive for his alleged actions.
Fisher is charged with aggravated assault, theft by unlawful taking, criminal mischief, recklessly endangering, and criminal trespass. He was released from York County Prison after posting a $30,000 bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled March 1.
