A homeowner's camera reportedly set up to track deer on a property along Bunola River Road turned up a pair of two-legged visitors last month. Forward Township police subsequently identified the pair, arresting one for the attempted break-in and the other on a drug count.

Forward Township police are looking for suspects in a series of recent break-ins.

Chief Mark Holtzman said the most recent occurred earlier this week at a house along Bunola River Road — and apparently was caught on the homeowner's cameras.

“The police department is trying to identify the suspects,” Holtzman said.

Holtzman said the latest burglary occurred shortly after the cameras were installed. He said items taken in recent heists have included yard equipment and tools.

The Forward chief asked anyone with information to call his department at 412-384-2134.

Recent burglaries have been brought to the attention of township supervisors, including a complaint at last month's board meeting.

There Holtzman said an arrest was made in that case. He also offered advice for residents planning a trip.

“Please contact us because we will do a house check for you,” he said.
