'Cat Burglar' Hits Two Washington Township Homes
A burglar broke into two Hampshire Road homes while the residents were sleeping inside.
Two Hampshire Road homes were struck by a "cat burglar" early Wednesday morning, according to Washington Township Police.
The homes had apparently been broken into while the residents were sleeping inside, police said.
An investigation found one home had been entered via an unlocked door, and a door of the other home was pried open.
The burglar got away with jewelrey and cash. Police did not say how much the stolen items were worth.
Earlier this year, a Van Emburgh Avenue resident "scuffled" with an intruder he found in his home.
Police said they wished to remind residents to lock the doors to their homes and report any suspicious activity. They have also previously shared tips for deterring would-be burglars.
