U.D. cops probe rash of home break-ins

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - NEWS - By the Times Staff

UP­PER DARBY » Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing a rash of bur­glar­ies in the Drexel Park sec­tion of the town­ship.

No in­juries have been re­ported in any of the home break-ins. Po­lice said no one was home dur­ing most of the in­ci­dents, but fear that could change since the in­ci­dents ap­pear to be es­ca­lat­ing.

Up­per Darby Po­lice Su­per­in­ten­dent Michael Chit­wood said he be­lieves the heists are prob­a­bly the work of one or two peo­ple, likely look­ing to make a quick score or some­thing they can sell for cash to buy drugs.

Four bur­glar­ies have been re­ported in the past three weeks. All have been in the Drexel Park sec­tion. In one in­ci­dent, a home in the 4000 block of Huey Av­enue was com­pletely ran­sacked while the home own­ers were away.

Po­lice noted the com­mon theme in the bur­glar­ies — all oc­curred while no one was at home.

Po­lice are urg­ing any­one who sees any­thing sus­pi­cious to re­port it.
