Whitehall Borough police received a burglary call from a resident in the 1700 block of Skyline Drive at around 4 a.m. on Saturday.
The victim, who resides in Whitehall's Wallace (Prospect) Park area, told police that someone recently entered her apartment and removed an iPad and a Sony PlayStation from it, borough police Deputy Chief Richard M. Danko said.
The total value of the missing items is approximately $500.
There was no forced entry to the residence, and the victim does not know when the items would have been removed. She arrived home that morning shortly before noticing the items to be missing and calling police, Danko said.
Football Player's Phone Missing
At around 9:10 a.m. on Saturday, Whitehall police received a call from a parent reporting that a Baldwin High School football player's cellphone was recently stolen or lost either soon before, during or soon after a Baldwin High football game played the night before at Mt. Lebanon High School. The player is the caller's son.
The parent told police that the phone must have been taken from Baldwin's home locker room in Whitehall or that the player dropped the phone some place near the school.
Borough police have since traced the phone to Whitehall's Mooreridge Drive area but have been unable to locate it.
The case is under investigation.
