Burglars target 2 Herminie stores


State police at Greensburg are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two burglars who forcibly entered two businesses in Herminie early Monday.

The first burglary was at the Exxon Service Station at 1 Highland Ave., where the two men smashed the door and stole several cartons of cigarettes.

The second occurred several blocks away at Fox’s Pizza Den at 34 Sewickley Ave. The burglars smashed out a side window, and one crawled through it, Trooper Steve Limani said.

“After looking around for a minute, he left without stealing anything,” he said.

The burglaries occurred before 3 a.m.

Both men are white. One wore a navy hooded jacket, jeans, black gloves and black and white tennis shoes. The other was dressed in a black hooded jacket, jeans, black gloves and dark-colored shoes.

Both businesses provided security video to police.

Anyone with information is asked to telephone state police at 724-832-3288.

TribLIVE commenting policy

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.
