A Maryland man has been sentenced for two 2018 bank robberies in Pennsylvania. The U. S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania said 29-year-old Jacob Charles LaFrance of Thurmont, Maryland, was sentenced to 41 months’ imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release.  LaFrance was also ordered to pay restitution.  He committed armed robberies of PNC Bank in Fairfield, Adams County, on April 25th, 2018, and M&T Bank in Blue Ridge Summit, Franklin County, on May 3rd, 2018.  Both robberies combined totaled more than $6,100.

 

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has issued a Request for Information (RFI) seeking private-sector feedback on operations, maintenance and commercialization of a fiber-optic network to be built by the commission along the eastern Turnpike.  The commission is developing two design-build projects for fiber-optic network installation. One project is for installation of 112 miles along the east‐west mainline from Harrisburg to the Delaware River Bridge; the other involves 110 miles of fiber along the Northeastern Extension. The goal is to have both contacts completed by December, 2021.  RFI input will be accepted through May 14th. The information gathered will help tailor final-design decisions for constructing the network and increasing system flexibility to maximize potential.
