Township Hit By Burglaries

Posted: August 09, 1990

A rash of burglaries in Montgomery Township in the last two weeks has prompted police to ask residents to keep an eye out for suspicious people and cars in their neighborhoods.

All six break-ins occurred during the daytime or early evening while residents were away, and entry was made through rear doors or windows. Police believe the burglars parked in the victims' driveways or were dropped off nearby.

The latest burglary occurred between 11 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. Monday in the 1400 block of Stump Road near County Line Road. Another home, in the 1300 block of Stump Road, was broken into between Sunday morning and Monday afternoon. In both cases, the homes were entered through a rear window.

Police were not releasing information on what was taken.

The other burglaries were at a home in the 500 block of Route 202 on Aug. 1; a home in the 600 block of North Wales Road on July 26; a home in the 100 block of Limekiln Pike on July 14, and a home in the 1200 block of Lower State Road on July 14.

Police are asking residents to be especially watchful of neighbors' homes if they are away on vacation and to note licenses of unusual cars or physical descriptions of suspicious people. Residents can call police at 362-2300.
