CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Pa. – Police are investigating a series of break in burglaries last month at food stands at the Carlisle Fairgrounds.

Carlisle Borough Police responded to the latest incident that happened at about 3 p.m. on Friday, October 28th. An open door was discovered at a food stand near Gate 1 at the fairgrounds.

Earlier in the week on October 25th, North Middleton Police took a similar report at Horner’s BBQ stand inside Carlisle Fairground.  All the buildings were entered by unknown suspect(s) through unconventional means, roof skylights, and window panels.

Further investigation lead to the discovery of other multiple food stand break-ins and criminal mischief to include:  BRUSTER’s food stand near car corral, French Fry Stand in front of Grandstands, Candy Barn behind grand stands and Shuman concessions. Nothing of value was discovered missing or stolen. These break-ins may have occurred earlier on October 24th, and not discovered until later due to the fairgrounds being open to the public but events had closed for the year.

Anyone with information on the burglaries should contact Cumberland County Crime Stoppers at  (855) 628-TIPS – (855) 628-8477 or
