Allentown gas station, store burglarized


Investigations are going on in Allentown for not one, but two burglaries that took place early Sunday morning.

The first incident happened at 2:08 a.m., at a Shell gas station in the 1400 block of South Fourth Street.

Police say that burglars smashed in the front door and left with an unknown amount of merchandise.


Roughly 10 minutes later, a second burglary took place at a Radio Shack in the 1500 block of Lehigh Street.

Again, police say the front door was smashed in. The burglars are believed to be two men wearing hoodies.

Police gave no other description. 

Officials say that it is a possibility that the crimes are related.
