https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V0w_R6_JiAg

Pennsylvania cops were searching for a man suspected of working in a marijuana grow operation when they ran him over with a bulldozer, killing him.

Pennsylvania state police tried to justify the killing by pointing out they found ten marijuana plants at the site.

They then tried to claim he died of a heart attack and that it was just a coincidence it happened as a bulldozer ran him over, according to the Reading Eagle.

But an autopsy determined Gregory A. Longenecker died of traumatic injuries.

The incident took place Monday when a Pennsylvania Game Commission worker on a bulldozer came across the marijuana grow operation plants on state land, so he called police.

The worker called Bernville Borough police, who spotted two men, arresting one of them after a brief foot chase, according to WGAL.

The other man disappeared into the woods, which is what prompted the search with the bulldozer.

State police were called, who dispatched a helicopter, spotting the missing man in a certain location in the woods.

That was when a trooper hopped on the bulldozer, directing the state commission worker to the location where the man was last spotted.

Next thing they knew, they had run him over, killing him.

According to Pennsylvania state police:

The second male eluded capture at that time. PSP and PA Game Commission resources were sent to this area around 11:00 AM. This included PSP aviation, patrol members, and vice unit members. The second male was briefly located by the PSP helicopter in thick underbrush. An attempt to hail the other male was unsuccessful. The helicopter lost site of the male and was giving directions to the bulldozer of his last location. The Game Commission employee and a Trooper were on the bulldozer driving through the thick underbrush. The bulldozer stopped in the underbrush. The second male was located under the rear of the bulldozer deceased.

Longenecker was 51. The name of the man arrested is David Brook Light, who is 54.

Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana in 2016. And earlier this year, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto called for the state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
