Goldilocks burglar hits Avonmore home

Friday, Aug. 16, 2013, 11:30 a.m.
 

An Avonmore man must know how the Three Bears felt when Goldilocks came calling.

Except the Goldilocks in this case was more sinister and likely brought at least one friend along.

A burglary at the residence of Kristopher L. Hill along Indiana Avenue seems oddly reminiscent of the ageless childhood tale, but no one will be telling young ones this tale at bedtime.

According to the state police, unknown persons entered Hill's home, using a steak knife to pry open a rear sliding door, sometime between Aug. 8 and 11.

Then, just like Goldilocks, they proceeded to make themselves at home.

They made themselves something to eat, using Hill's range and cookware, played Xbox games and went through Hill's personal possessions. Instead of taking a nap, the burglars found the keys to Hill's Chevrolet Blazer and took it for a spin. They even took a shower in one of Hill's bathrooms, the state police said.

When they left Hill's residence, the culprits took with them $150 in loose change and, after finding keys to two gun safes, took a Ruger SW .40 cal. handgun, a Mossberg 835 12-gauge shotgun and a Crossman 760 Pump Master BB gun, police said.

Police are continuing their investigation. Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to contact the state police at 724-727-3434.
