One commercial burglary and two residential burglaries, reports taken today.

DATE: Thursday, December 09, 2010

Lower Paxton Twp. Police are investigating three burglaries reported yesterday and today:

1. Someone forcibly entered the Hibachi Grill at the Colonial Commons, 5080 Jonestown Rd., at approximately 2:53 AM yesterday morning and entered the building briefly. Surveillance video shows the burglar enters the building, looks up at the camera and then flees. Nothing was taken. The burglar was wearing light colored jeans, a black jacket, a light colored beanie-style cap and a light colored backpack. Video is not yet available for distribution.
2. Someone entered a residence on Thicket Lane and caused damage to several items inside. The crime appeared to target the homeowner personally due to some writings left behind. The burglary happened sometime between November 19 and November 22, 2010. The homeowner was out of town and did not report the crime until yesterday.
3. Police today responded to Birmingham Place in the Windmere development for a residential burglary involving a quantity of jewelry being stolen. Although the crime occurred sometime over the last three weeks, it was discovered today.

None of these crimes appear to be related.
