SANATOGA PA – It happened again, Lower Pottsgrove police reported Thursday (Aug. 7, 2014).
For the second time within the past 30 days, unknown thieves and vandals broke into or damaged parked cars and external property along five residential neighborhood streets in the township during overnight hours Wednesday (Aug. 6). Several of the vehicles were unlocked, detectives said.
Items collectively taken from vehicles on Creekside Drive, Potter Drive (where three incidents occurred), Kepler Road, Lee Drive (two incidents) and North Valley Road include loose change and cash, sunglasses, and a briefcase filled with pilot equipment.
Detectives also said there were five incidents of criminal mischief, in which mailboxes and light posts “were ripped from the ground.”
They warned all township residents to lock their cars and ensure they are secure at night. They suggested outside lights, if available, be kept on all night; or that home owners install security sensor lights, if possible. Anyone who sees anything suspicious occurring in their neighborhoods should call 9-1-1 immediately, they urged.
Detectives asked anyone with information on the most recent or earlier incidents to call the police department at 610-323-1130.
