Police in Dauphin County investigate a series of burglaries in Lower Paxton Township.  The burglaries happened overnight along the 700 block of Rockford Drive. Police say a home was burglarized some time between 11:30 pm Tuesday night and 6 am this morning, while the residents were asleep. A door was entered and a Coach purse and a work bag were stolen from the kitchen.  A car in the driveway was also entered and a pair of Wayfarer sunglasses were stolen.

During that same time period on the same block a screen door was cut in an attempt to enter a home. Nothing was missing from that property. Other vehicles on the block were entered but nothing of note was stolen.  A burglary of an attached garage on the 6200 block of Bluestone Avenue was also reported. A red Craftsman air compressor was stolen.

Last Saturday morning, a burglary was reported at a business in the same neighborhood. A red Ford F-250 pickup with an auxiliary gas tank in the bed was stolen. That vehicle has not been recovered.
