CLARION TWP., Pa. (EYT) - Clarion-based State Police have apprehended a Pennsylvania teen who is accused of driving a stolen U-Haul van across the United States.

State Police say 19-year-old Marc Angelo Lewandowski, of Lake Ariel, Pa., stole a Ford Transit van owned by U-Haul from a lot near Honesdale, Wayne County, Pa., on May 28.

After stealing the vehicle, Lewandowski allegedly drove it throughout the United States, avoiding apprehension.

On Tuesday around 1:05 p.m., police say he was observed operating the stolen U-Haul van on Interstate 80 eastbound near mile marker 68. Police say he was driving while holding an open Busch Light beer can in his hand.

Police say a felony stop was conducted and Lewandowski was taken into custody on charges related to the stolen vehicle and outstanding criminal warrants in Wayne County.

He was subsequently lodged in the Clarion County Jail.

Authorities say Lewandowski will be extradited to Wayne County.

He also faces DUI charges.

Did he actually steal it or just rent it and not fulfill the agreement by not returning it?

Good job keeping it on the road so long (I suppose that is where the smile came from).

I'll agree with @4t7, nice mugshot...better than any of mine::snaphappy::

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
