Police said they have received a very large number of phone calls since the arrests of three Cumberland County men suspected of burglarizing a large number of sheds, storage units and construction trailers since April.

Middlesex Township police said many of the calls have been from people who have had items stolen and did not report the thefts to police, or are just now realizing they had items stolen from their sheds.

Justin A. Schlusser, 21; his brother Ryan C. Schlusser, 18; and Matthew J. Anderson, 30, all of Carlisle, were charged last week with receiving stolen property after they admitted to committing hundreds of burglaries in Cumberland and Perry counties, according to police.

Police are now looking to return the stolen property, mostly construction tools, that they seized from properties in Carlisle in Harrisburg.

Authorities said people who live outside of Middlesex Township must first call their local police department to report the theft.

Those who plan to come to Middlesex Township to recover property are asked to bring a list of stolen items and all serial numbers of the items taken.

Police said they will do their best to return items in a timely manner, but it may take some time because of the number of people calling and the staggering amount of recovered items.
