Toohil Talks MinSec
Friday’s robbery is not the first to be committed by a MinSec resident. As a matter of fact, a number of crimes have been committed by current or past inmates of the halfway house. One person who is not happy and wants the facility out of Hazleton is State Representative Tarah Toohil. She has taken her fight to Harrisburg calling on her colleagues to back her up. Toohil says she is confident that there will be some sort of solution soon and was even on the phone with the Governor’s Office just minutes after learning of Friday morning’s robbery. A bill that is in the senate, which Toohil supports, is one that if passed, would send at least half of the inmates right back to state prison.
