Police warn of home burglaries in Easton
Easton police are investigating a series of residential burglaries in the western part of the city.
"We would like to remind the public about the importance of securing your homes and also remaining vigilant," said police inspector Daniel J. Reagan. "We want the public to be aware and alert."
Reagan reported that homes were left unsecured, with unlocked doors or windows, during some of the incidents.
Entry to homes was made through front, rear and basement doors as well as first-floor windows. In one case, an air conditioner apparently was pushed in to gain access.
Items most often taken are cash, computers, jewelry and televisions.
Police believe the burglar or burglars are leaving on foot with items they steal.
A possible suspect is described as being in his 30s, with a slender build, brown hair, mustache and wearing jeans and a t-shirt.
Police report evidence has been recovered from many of the crime scenes and they actively are investigating the burglaries.
Anyone who sees suspicious activity immediately should notify police. If a crime is in progress, 911 should be called.
Anyone with information on the burglaries should contact Detective Matthew Rush at 610-250-6639. Information about crimes also can be relayed to police by calling its tip line at 610-250-6635.
