WEST POTTS­GROVE » West Potts­grove Po­lice are re­mind­ing res­i­dents to lock their homes af­ter a re­cent rash of bur­glar­ies in the town­ship.

Po­lice sent out a state­ment Aug. 27 in­di­cat­ing that five in­ci­dents in­volv­ing bur­glar­ies of area homes were re­ported on Aug. 25. In three of those in­ci­dents, the sus­pects were able to gain en­try into the homes through un­locked first floor win­dows. The other two in­ci­dents were re­ported at­tempts, po­lice said.

The bur­glar­ies oc­curred be­tween 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. at homes on the 200 block of Grosstown Road and the 400 block of Fairview Street.

Po­lice did not spec­ify if any­thing was taken dur­ing the bur­glar­ies.

“We are ask­ing all res­i­dents to lock all first floor win­dows and doors and re­port any sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity. We have in­creased over night/tar­geted pa­trol in the area,” wrote West Potts­grove Po­lice Chief Matthew Stof­flet in an email.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the in­ci­dents is asked to con­tact De­tec­tive Roeder with West Potts­grove Po­lice Depart­ment at 610-3232090.
