LANSFORD, Pa. -

Police in Carbon County say they've found a vehicle that apparently belongs to a Bethlehem homicide suspect.

Lansford police searched the woods near the borough's Andrewsville section Thursday morning after finding a pickup truck there.

Police say the truck is registered to Rene Figueroa.

He and another man are charged with homicide in the death of Yolanda Morales.

Police say Figueroa fired the shot that killed her outside the Puerto Rican Beneficial Society Club in South Bethlehem on Dec. 1.

Witnesses say someone left the truck four days ago and never returned.

Police didn't find anyone Thursday morning and it's still unclear who was driving the truck.
