Penn Township police seek home burglar
Police are seeking the public's help in locating a Penn Township man accused of burglarizing a Level Green home late last week.
Township police Chief John Otto said authorities have obtained an arrest warrant for Michael Lapaglia, 23, of Pine Hollow Road. He is described as 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Otto said police were called to a home on Pine Hollow Road about 3 p.m. Friday for a report of a burglary in progress.
Otto said a resident reportedly found a man, later identified as Lapaglia, going through a jewelry box in an upstairs bedroom.
Police said the suspect fled on foot while the resident telephoned 911.
Officers summoned K-9 assistance from North Huntingdon police and a state police air search team but were unable to locate Lapaglia.
Lapaglia is wanted on charges of burglary, theft, criminal trespass and other offenses, Otto said.
Anyone with information on Lapaglia's whereabouts is asked to telephone township police by dialing 911.
