Multiple Burglaries Reported in South Baldwin
Police Chief Scott warns against unlocked windows and doors.
Multiple residents of the 600 block of Blossom Drive in south Baldwin Borough have, in the past month, reported being victims of home burglaries, Baldwin police Chief Michael Scott confirmed on Monday.
Neighbors have informed the Baldwin-Whitehall Patch of the burglaries and are warning fellow residents of south Baldwin and nearby Bethel Park to lock their windows and doors.
Scott expressed the same warning and said that Baldwin police have identified a person of interest in their investigation of the burglaries—an adult male. That person of interest lives in an unvictimized home in the same block of Blossom.
Police were able to track footprints from one of the victimized homes to the person of interest's home, Scott said, but the victims were not able to say exactly when their belongings were taken.
Should you live in the area and have noticed anything missing, contact your local police department with details.
Baldwin Borough police can be reached at 412-882-9600, ext. 200. Bethel Park police can be reached at 412-833-2000.
"It's never a good idea to leave your doors or your windows unlocked, or your car doors," Scott said, "or to leave items of value in sight."
