Mt. Pleasant burglaries being investigated

  • February 18, 2014

Mt. Pleasant Township and state police are investigating two daylight burglaries Monday.

Township police Chief Lou McQuillan was called about 2:45 p.m. for a reported burglary at the home of John Wurtzer, 3300 Henderson Road. McQuillan said glass was broken on a door to gain entry into the house.

Stolen from the home were a flat-screen television and jewelry. Wurtzer told police he was only gone from his home for about two hours.

About 7 p.m., Matthew A. Novick of Elm Road reported to state police that his home was burglarized. The culprit forcibly entered the home, also stealing a flat-screen television as well as an Xbox, two laptop computers and 20 long guns and pistols.

McQuillan said police are looking into whether there is a connection between the two break-ins.

Anyone with information or who might have someone suspicious in those areas is asked to call township police at 724-356-7919, ext. 107 or state police at 724-223-5200.
