Coaldale break-in

Published July 30. 2010 05:00PM

Coaldale police are investigating what they describe as a "professional" hit on a borough home Wednesday.

A burglar or burglars broke into a home at 163 Second St. through a basement window between 8:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. and stole a large amount of money and jewelry from a safe.

The thief or thieves apparently searched for more valuables, going through drawers, but tidied up to hide their activities, said Police Chief Tim Delaney.

"They knew what they were doing," he said, describing the heist as "professional."

Police have been canvassing the neighborhood and talking with people who live in the area. They ask that anyone who saw anything suspicious, be it people or vehicles, to call them at (570) 645-3060.
