Caught on camera: Reading police seek to ID burglars

READING, Pa. - Reading police are seeking to identify the person or persons behind a pair of burglaries.

One of the break-ins happened shortly before 3:30 a.m. Tuesday at a convenience store in the 200 block of Warren Street in Reading; the other took place early Monday morning at a bar on New Holland Road in Kenhorst, which is covered by city police.

Surveillance photos from the store break-in show the glass door shattered and the burglar carrying what appears to be a sledge hammer.

Police said both burglaries happened at a time when the businesses were closed.

Anyone who can identify the individuals is asked to contact Crime Alert Berks County via anonymous text to 847411, starting the message with keyword alertberks, or by calling 877-373-9913. A cash reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
