Burglary Through Garage Door in Whitehall

And four other Whitehall Borough police stories from the past week.

Burglary Through Garage Door

Whitehall Borough police officers went to Carriage Drive at around 11:04 p.m. on Thursday for a report that a garage door at a home on that street was suspiciously and partially left open.

Officers contacted the home's owner, who arrived shortly later, Whitehall police Chief Donald R. Dolfi said.

Officers could not find forced entry anywhere to the home, but the owner reported that watches and other jewelry items valued between $3,400 and $3,500 were missing from the home. The owner is still taking an inventory of possibly stolen items.

The incident is under investigation.

Teenager Arrested for Assault

Whitehall police officers went to the 1695 Parkline Dr. apartments building in the Wallace (Prospect) Park area at around 6:58 a.m. on Saturday for a report of a disturbance there.

When the officers arrived, they spoke to the Parkline resident who filed the complaint and were directed to the apartment that the disturbance was coming from.

The officers made contact with the two occupants of that apartment and discovered that a verbal argument between them had "escalated into a physical assault," Dolfi said.

The officers arrested one of the occupants—Shakil Deonte Brown, 19, of 1695 Parkline, Apt. 38—and took him to the Allegheny County Jail. Brown is being charged with assault, harassment and underage drinking.

Four Teenagers Charged with Marijuana Possession in Park

Whitehall police officers went to Overlook Acres Park at around 9:03 a.m. on Friday for a report of a disturbance there.

When the officers arrived, they discovered marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the possession of four 16-year-old boys, Dolfi said.

The boys were taken to the Whitehall police station and interviewed along with their parents.

Juvenile charges are pending against the boys, whom Dolfi said all reside in "the immediate area."

Vehicle's Window Smashed on Bevan Road

Whitehall police officers went to the 1500 block of Bevan Road in the Prospect Park area at around 12:19 p.m. on Sunday for a report that a window on a resident's vehicle had been smashed.

An officer at the scene determined that the vehicle—a 1991 Chevrolet Geo cargo van—had a hole in its driver's-wide window that was consistent with some sort of a pellet, Dolfi said.

There were no other reports of similar activity in that area around that time. The incident occurred sometime between Saturday evening and early Sunday afternoon.

Police are investigating.
