Greensburg police release new footage of truck thief suspects

Greensburg police have released new surveillance footage of two people suspected of stealing a truck and several guns from the city’s Saybrook Village neighborhood.

The video, taken from a resident’s security camera, shows the pair rifling through unlocked cars in a driveway.

One of the suspects, previously described by police, was wearing a ski mask. The other could not clearly be seen in the video.

The men stole a 2016 Toyota Tundra from a residence on Battleboro Drive early Monday morning, which was later found in Wilkinsburg, Allegheny County.

They also stole two handguns from vehicles on Battleboro Drive and nearby Cranston Drive, according to police.

Police said they believe the same suspects are connected to another string of thefts from vehicles that happened on Heather Ridge in Hempfield Township Nov. 5.

Investigators were originally unsure whether the thefts were committed by one or two people, but the video confirms a second suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 724-834-3800.

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.
