A pair of lesbian lovers have admitted to burglarizing 29 homes but passed up one house where they encountered a lion, police said.
Harley Rose Gifford and Britney Singleton, both 19 and from the 7100 block of Marshall Road, in Upper Darby have been arrested, according to police who expect to charge them with the crimes when their initial investigation is completed.
They are currently being held on unrelated charges, according to court documents.
Police were continuing to check the home that reportedly held the lion.
"If we find a lion it will be a bigger story than this," said Michael J. Chitwood, superintendent of police.
