Police warn vacant property owners of recent thefts PDF Print E-mail

The Charlestown Police Department has recently seen a spike in vacant property burglaries, specifically involving the theft of copper wiring and pipes. Several vacant homes during the past three weeks have been burglarized where forced entry is made and the only items missing are plumbing copper pipes and electrical copper wiring. These products are then sold to local metal recycling companies for quick cash, and normally to support personal drug addiction. Historically, these types of thefts have caused more damage loss to property during removal than the actual value of the copper removed. Police suggest that vacant property owners take any and all precautions to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of one of these crimes; including maintaining the property with regular visits, use of good exterior lighting, maintenance of solid and good working door locks and dead bolts, alarm systems if possible, and assistance of neighbors. The helpful eye of adjacent neighbors calling police when seeing suspicious activity in their area is invaluable. Additional crime prevention tips can be located on the Charlestown Police Department web site at www.ctownpd.com.

Three men are now awaiting trial on multiple felony charges in connection with a house burglary that occurred April 7 in Lexington Township.
Deputy Rodney Rudder was dispatched to the burglarized home around 6 p.m. that Thursday to take the initial report. The homeowner said he had left his house around 6 a.m. and returned to find it burglarized.
Among items missing was a 50-inch television, a Panasonic camcorder, a Canon camera and a bowie knife.
Because the owner had surveillance cameras in several locations around his property, the officer was able to view film that helped him create a detailed description of a blue Chevy extended cab pickup truck used in the burglary. He was able to get a partial license plate number as well and a video of three young white males.
Descriptions of the men and their vehicle was given to other officers.
