“There may be a con­nec­tion. We’re not sure yet,” sDLG LRwHr 0DNH­fiHOG 3ROLFH CKLHI .Hn CROuzzL. “Our de­tec­tives are talk­ing to (Langhorne). We’re look­ing at the cir­cum­stances at how that hap­pened, try­ing to get video,” said the chief. “We can’t say for cer­tain at this point that it is but they are look­ing at it.”

CROuzzL sDLG DW DERuW 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 10, a man en­tered a side door at MailN-More just as em­ploy­ees were get­ting ready to close the store for the day.
