Sur­veil­lance photo

A Bustleton homeown­er’s in­vest­ment in sur­veil­lance cam­er­as may pay off big time as po­lice have re­covered ex­tens­ive video of a re­cent burg­lary of the prop­erty.

The crime oc­curred on March 2 on the 9700 block of Glen­hope Road. At about 4:20 a.m., an un­known man ap­proached the front door and knocked. When no one answered, the man walked to the rear of the home and used a tool to pry open the rear door. Video cam­er­as re­cor­ded the burg­lar at both doors. 

Once in­side, the crook stole a Play­Sta­tion, gold chain, rings, watches and $160 cash, po­lice said. He fled on foot north­bound on Glen­hope Road.

The burg­lar was de­scribed as white with a green hooded coat and a gray hooded sweat­shirt un­der­neath. He also wore blue jeans. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­Tube.com to view the sur­veil­lance video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
