FRANKLIN PARK, Pa. —
Authorities are warning Franklin Park residents after a rash of daylight burglaries recently in the area. According to police, there have been four burglaries in the area in the past three weeks, the most recent of which was Saturday night on McAleer Road. Investigators said a family returned home from vacation and found thousands of dollars of jewelry missing. "For anyone it's traumatic when their home is broken into," Franklin Park Police Chief Don Dorsch said. "They're getting in quickly by forcibly entering the homes. They're going after mainly jewelry." Dorsch said the break-ins are all random and have all occurred not far from the interstate. "They're taking personal items, sometime heirlooms, a thing that can't be replaced, that's the tragedy," Dorsch said. According to Dorsch, these types of crimes aren't unusual during the holidays, when criminals take advantage of people traveling and shopping. Homeowners are urged to lock doors and windows, and keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
