Harrisburg police investigating business break-ins

Posted: Updated:

Security cameras at a Harrisburg auto repair business captured two men trying to break in through the front door.

Joe Gilmer of Gilmer's Service Center near 6th and Division said the would-be burglars spent nearly 45 minutes trying to break the glass.

Once they succeeded, Gilmer said the men were not able to get inside because the door has a dead bolt that can only be opened by key.

Gilmer says one of the men left a fingerprint on a security bar and police were able lift the print as evidence.

Several security cameras also recorded three men as they smashed their way into the nearby Metro PCS store in the Uptown Shopping Center on Monday night.

The owner, Bill Heilig, says the intruders didn't have time to steal anything because the alarm went off several seconds later and they ran out of the store before police arrived.

Heilig says he will install more security measures, including roll-down doors and special glass to help deter future crime efforts.
