Home video surveillance captures theft of heater from porch

Posted

Video surveillance equipment of a homeowner on Lake Drive in Lower Swatara Township captured the theft of a box heater from the residence’s porch on Friday, Feb. 24.

The video shows a heavy-set white man with dark hair, wearing a black shirt with a red stripe at the shoulder line, knock lightly on the door to the residence. He then leaves the porch and picks up a wooden box heater from the table. He enters what appears to be a Ford Freestar van. The van might be blue or gray. 

The wooden box heater is valued around $300. Approximately two weeks before the theft, another person, not the pictured subject, stopped and inquired if the heater was for sale.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Lower Swatara Township police via Dauphin County Control at 717-558-6900, or contact Dauphin County Crime Stoppers at 800-262-3080.
