KULPMONT — Kulpmont resident Jill Smith accused borough councilman Walter Lutz of stealing a star from the former JH & CK Eagle Mill in Kulpmont during the public comment portion of Wednesday’s regularly scheduled meeting.

Lutz noted that he and others saw the star in a window at the mill prior to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conducting extensive work at the location.

I think Lutz should be arrested and tried for theft by unlawful taking at the very least, along with any other charges that should be attached to this investigation by either the County DA or better yet the State Attorney General for the illegal theft of the iconic Mill Star. He committed a serious crime under the guise of Council President and should be removed from office if through this investigation he is found guilty in court of a crime relating to his office he must either resign or be removed from office according to the statute governing all elected officials.
