Lower Paxton police investigate string of burglaries

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police in Lower Paxton Township are investigating an overnight burglary at the Blue Ridge Country Club.

According to officials, someone broke into the country club on the 3900 block of Linglestown Road between 11 p.m. Sunday night and Monday morning when an employee reported for work.

Authorities said the burglar forcibly entered the building and took an unknown amount of cash from various places within the club.

Extensive damage was done to the building and the alarm system during the burglary.

Police are also investigating similar burglaries that took place during the spring and summer of this year.

Officials said someone broke into the Colonial Lounge on the 500 block of North Mountain Road on May 13, L&N Distributors on the 600 block of North Mountain Road on May 22, and the Colonial Golf and Tennis Club along the 4900 block of Linglestown Road on June 10.

Lower Paxton Township Police say that during the incident at the Colonial Lounge the thieves broke into a PA Lottery machine. That is one of the first times that has happened, police say.

The owner of L&N Beverage spoke with abc27. He is disappointed with the turn of events.

"I am sad to think that these kind of people are out there in our community and are targeting honest, hardworking business owners like myself," Bob Holloway said.

Police do not have video or pictures of the suspects in spite of surveillance systems at the businesses targeted. During one instance police said they took the footage.

Anyone with information may contact the Lower Paxton Township Police Department at (717) 657-5656, the anonymous tipline at (717) 724-8317 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 262-3080.
