Two Hummelstown homes burglarized

Burglaries at two Hummelstown homes on Sunday, Jan. 11 or Monday, Jan. 12 are believed to be related, according to Hummelstown police.

One home is located in the first block of Prospect Street and the other in the 200 block of E. High St., police said.

Unspecified items were taken from each home, police said. Because similar burglaries at homes in a neighboring municipality may be related as well, police are not divulging what was taken from the Hummelstown homes, police said.

Burglars forced their way into each Hummelstown home and opened drawers and closets, police said. No one was at home at the time, police said.
