Tabs

Case

At 11:30 pm Friday (11/16/18) night, WYBPD Officers were dispatched to the 1500 block of St. Paul Alley for the report of two (2) individuals breaking into a vehicle. 

Within a minute of dispatch, officers arrived in the area and observed two juvenile subject's fitting the description of the suspicious people walking away from the area and attempted to stop them. These individuals fled on foot and our officers gave chase, running towards West King Street. Both individuals ran in separate directions, scaling fences and running through several backyards, until ultimately, our officers lost sight of them. 

In speaking with local residents, a victim (vehicle owner) was identified. That individual stated that there was a small amount of money & personal belongings taken from the vehicle, which was unlocked.

We are asking all residents to remember to lock / secure their vehicles & property, and are seeking help from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious occurring in this area prior to police arrival. If you saw two individuals, one wearing a red hoodie, jeans & a black baseball cap in or around the area, or feel as though your vehicle (in this area) was tampered with, please submit a tip through CRIMEWATCH or contact our station at (717) 854-1975.
