Harrison police warn residents to secure cars after thefts from unlocked vehicles

Brian C. Rittmeyer

Harrison police again are reminding residents to be sure their cars outside are locked at night.

Several unlocked cars were entered along Pennsylvania and Harvard avenues in the Natrona Heights area of the township before sunrise Thursday morning, police Chief Mike Klein said.

Police knew of up to seven cars that had been entered. Only unlocked cars were entered.

The perpetrators rummaged through the cars, looking for things such as cash, change or device chargers — anything that could be taken quickly.

Klein said police were working to get video from a resident’s surveillance system, but did not yet have any images to provide a description of the person or persons entering the cars.

Anyone with information can reach Harrison police at 724-224-3355.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
