Borough Police Probe 4 Overnight Burglaries

Intruders get away with money, jewelry, laptop during break-ins on E. Main, E. Berger, Harrison and Chestnut streets, police say.

Emmaus police are investigating four recent overnight residential burglaries, with three of the four happening on Sundays and two of them on the same Sunday.

It's not clear from information provided by borough police if residents were in their homes when the burglaries occurred.

Two of the incidents were during the early-morning hours of Dec. 22 and apparently involved a single intruder.

One incident was on the 600 block of E. Berger Street and the second was at a second-floor apartment on the 500 block of Chestnut Street. The intruder stole money from the E. Berger Street home, while the intruder stole jewelry from the Chestnut Street apartment, police said.

The third burglary happened the next night -- the overnight hours of Dec. 23 -- and also involved a single intruder who broke into a residence of the 100 block of Harrison Street and stole jewelry, police said.

The fourth burglary was about a week earlier -- Dec. 15, also a Sunday -- on the 400 block of E. Main St. This case involved more than one person. The intruders stole jewelry and a laptop, police said.

The police information does not say exactly how the intruders were able to break into the residences. And it does not say if they believe the same people carried out the burglaries.

The E. Berger Street and E. Main Street homes are in the eastern part of the borough closer to Salisbury Township. The Chestnut Street apartment is west of the triangle, while the Harrison Street home is adjacent to Northwood Cemetery.
