Reward offered for tips on daylight burglaries
Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers reported Feb. 4 that a reward up to $1,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest and/or conviction of the person(s) responsible for the slew of recent daylight burglaries in the Ephrata area.
The Ephrata Police are investigating a total of four daylight residential burglaries that have occurred over the past two and a half weeks.
"The homes are being randomly chosen," said Detective Brad Ortenzi of the Ephrata Police Department. "It doesn’t appear they are targeted."
Residences of working citizens on Highland Avenue, West Chestnut Street and Park Avenue have been entered by force, and items such as jewelry and electronics have been taken.
"That seems to be where they are located, and contained to a two or three block radius," said Detective Ortenzi. He said at this point, police are unsure as to whether or not the criminals are local.
"Obviously, if you see anything suspicious, don’t hesitate to call the police," said Detective Ortenzi. "A common MO of the person is that they are knocking on the door and using a fake name to force entry once they feel comfortable enough. If a stranger is at your door, asking for someone who doesn’t reside there, do not answer the door or allow them to enter."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Ortenzi at 738-9200, extension 243 or Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers at 800-322-1913. Anyone with information can also anonymously Text a Tip to Crime Stoppers by using a cell phone: text LANCS and a message to 847411. Callers may remain anonymous and do not have to give their names.
