DNA Used to Link Teen with Whitehall Borough Burglary

And four other stories in these Whitehall police notes from the past week.

Blood Match

The Allegheny County Crime Lab returned a DNA match recently on blood taken from the scene of a January buglary in Whitehall Borough, Whitehall police Chief Donald R. Dolfi said.

Police had a person of interest in the burglary case, Dolfi said, and took a blood sample from that person. The blood was left behind in a Whitehall Place apartment on Maple Drive, which is in the Wallace (Prospect) Park area.

Whitehall police are now proceeding with a burglary charge against that person of interest—a 17-year-old boy.

Boat Vandalized Along North Emblem Drive

A North Emblem Drive resident reported to Whitehall police at around 4:30 p.m. on Sunday that one or more people had recently spraypainted his boat while it sat in the rear of his property, Dolfi said.

The boat is a Four Winns model, and it was damaged by black spraypaint on its port (left) side.

The incident is under investigation.

Vehicle Damage on Parkline Drive

A resident from the 1600 block of Parkline Dr. in the Prospect Park area reported to Whitehall police at around 8:40 a.m. on Saturday that one or more people flattened all four tires of his red 2006 Dodge Ram sometime during Friday evening or early Saturday morning while it was parked on his street.

The resident estimated the cost of the tire damage at around $900. The truck's antenna was also bent.

The incident is under investigation.
