Hanover Police are looking for two people who stole Utz truck and crashed it into a Hanover home Friday night.

The truck caused only minor damage to the property.

No one in the house was hurt in the crash, which took place shortly before 10:30 p.m. in the first block of Lee Street near McKinley Avenue. Hanover Police Interim Chief Chad Martin said police weren't in pursuit of the the chip-bearing 1994 Oshkosh step van when it crashed; they were investigating the reported theft when they were called to the Lee Street home.

The truck was idling outside a maintenance facility in the 900 block of High Street in the borough when someone hopped in and took off in it, according to the fire department.

Police seek two people who they say are people of interest in this case. One's described as a tall, slender male wearing dark pants and a gray shirt, and both were seen in the area on the maintenance facility in a dark-colored car shortly before the theft, according to police.

Someone stole an Utz truck and crashed it into a Hanover house Friday night, according to authorities.

The fire department said the damage to both the house and the truck was minor; in the photos of the incident the fire department posted online, it appears the truck's front bumper was a little crinkled from hitting the home's front patio, which looked only a little worse for the wear.

Utz officials did not immediately return a call for comment.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Hanover Police at 637-5575.
