3 Home Burglaries Reported Since New Year's Day

South Whitehall Township police urge residents to call if they see suspicious activity.

South Whitehall Township police are investigating three home burglaries that have taken place since New Year’s Day.

The most recent of the break-ins was reported to police at 2 p.m. Sunday on the 800 block of Hausman Road.

Another burglary was reported on Jan. 3 on the 4000 block of Hampshire Court at a little before 8 p.m.

The first of the 2014 burglaries was reported at about 12:30 a.m. New Year’s Day on the 1400 block of N. 29th Street. In that case, a television and jewelry were stolen. Police are still compiling an inventory of stolen items from the other two burglaries, said South Whitehall Township police Sgt. Michael Sorrentino.

There was forced entry at all three of the burglarized homes and, in each case, the burglar or burglars had a small window during which the homeowners were out, Sorrentino said. Police do not necessarily believe that the burglaries are related, however.

Sorrentino urged South Whitehall residents to keep an eye out for their neighbors and to report any suspicious-looking activity to police immediately.

Anyone with information about any of the burglaries is asked to call the South Whitehall Township Police Department at 610-398-0337.
