Theft from vehicles

The Penbrook Police Department has received numerous complaints over the past several weeks reporting thefts from vehicles.

The thefts are not localized to any specific location within the borough.  Generally, unlocked vehicles are targeted, however on 7/31/18 we received a report of a vehicle entered by force.  In two of the recent thefts, handguns were taken from unlocked vehicles.

Residents are reminded to lock your vehicles and to remove valuables, especially dangerous items like firearms from vehicles prior to parking them overnight.  

Please contact police if you observe suspicious activity, especially during the nighttime hours.  Police dispatch can be reached at 717-558-6900.
