WILSON, Pa. -

Police are investigating reports of copper pipes being stolen from two of three homes that were burglarized in Wilson, Northampton Co.

The break-ins were reported within 24 hours of each other in the 1700 block of Washington Boulevard, the 1500 block of Ferry Street and the 1500 block of Lehigh Street.

Copper pipe was taken from two of the three homes, police said; the third home did not have copper pipe.

All three homes were either listed for sale or pending foreclosure, said police, adding that the thieves got inside by forcing their way through a back door.
