Reports of an armed person surrounded in a tractor-trailer involved in a chase Monday afternoon in Hazleton. PSP snipers are in place. Everyone is being kept away from Beech and Vine Streets. Hazleton’s Mayor Jeff Cusat posted a message on Facebook just before 5 o’clock saying that, “The Hazleton Police Department and State Police are asking everyone to stay away from the Beech Street playground until further notice.”
