Diversion Burglaries

CITIZENS BEWARE: Swatara Township Police are investigating two reported incidents of diversion-style burglaries. On both occasions, three white males (approximately 30, 45, and 55 years old) arrived at the victim's home driving a white 4-door station wagon or SUV. One of the males stayed with the car, while the other two met with the homeowner. They claimed to be selling carpet, and brought a large carpet sample into the victim's home. While one male displayed the carpet, the other male stole items from the home.

Citizens are encouraged not to allow door-to-door salesmen into their homes. If you have information pertaining to these two incidents, please call the Swatara Township Police, or submit a tip online.
