Berks break-ins

EARL TWP., Pa. -

Police in eastern Berks County are looking for information after multiple home break-ins.

They say there have been 17 home burglaries since the end of June.

One of the victims is a 77-year-old man in Earl Township, who came home this week to find his TV, laptop, and two gold rings missing.


Police say the burglars are knocking on doors in the middle of the day and asking obscure questions to gain access to the homes.
