Pair sought in attempted burglary in South Union Twp.

State police are looking for two men who allegedly broke into Matheson Gas, a mid-stream natural gas company, early Saturday.

Police said the men were caught on surveillance video entering the building at 1048 National Pike between 1:30 a.m. and 2:15 a.m. using a hammer. They dropped the hammer as they fled the scene because a motion alarm was activated.

The men caused damage in the break-in but but did not take any items, police said.

One man could be seen wearing a red bandana over his face, dark hooded jacket, pants and dark shoes with white bottoms. The other was observed wearing a white bandana over his face and a dark, hooded jacket that was unzipped to reveal a dark shirt with print across the front. Both were wearing gloves.

Police sent the hammer to Greensburg Regional Laboratory for DNA and fingerprint analysis. Anyone with information can contact state police at 724-439-7111.

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.
