Police warn of diversion-style burglaries

Police in Swatara Township, Dauphin County said they're investigating two reported incidents of diversion-style burglaries.

Both crimes occurred Wednesday afternoon in the Oberlin/Bressler/Enhaut area, police said.

On both occasions, three white males arrived at the victim's home driving a white 4-door station wagon or SUV. One of the males stayed with the car, while the other two met with the home owner.

Police said they claimed to be selling carpet, and brought a large carpet sample into the victim's home. While one male displayed the carpet, the other male stole items from the home.

Police encouraged residents not to allow door-to-door salesmen into their homes.

Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to call Swatara Township police at 717-564-2550 or submit a tip online at SwataraPolice.org.
