Fresh Rash of Burglaries Hit the Lehigh Valley in the Last Week

Posted by: Noël Jones

Michael Buck of the Express-Times reports that four local businesses have been broken into since December 5th: Easton Yoga, Gino's Pizza, and Subway downtown, and now Tacquiero Ranchito on the 600 block of Northampton, which has been the subject of much discussion lately. The first three businesses all had money stolen. Tacquiero Ranchito had nothing taken, presumably because the alarm scared them off.

The Morning Call also reports three recent robberies on their front page in Allentown, Whitehall and Bethlehem. The paper's interactive crime map keeps track of recent reports of crime in various cities, with Allentown and Bethlehem being the highest crime areas, which makes sense because they have the highest populations in the Lehigh Valley. Bethlehem has recently increased police patrols in response to the robberies.

They haven't caught the perpetrators of the Easton robberies yet. Easton police ask that anyone with information on these break-ins please call:

Detective Christopher Miller: 610-250-6656, or 
Detective Darren Synder: 610-250-6637

in this day and age, regardless of location a business should have an alarm system and video surveillance. It isn't costly like it was ten years ago.
