Shots-fired call in Whitehall ends up being burglary

WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - Authorities in Lehigh County responding to a call for shots fired arrived to instead find an attempted burglary.

Police flooded the 3200 block of Prydon Drive in Whitehall Township shortly after 10 p.m. to investigate a shots-fired call. But township police Chief Michael Marks said the situation was actually a burglary in progress.

Marks said a window in the home had been shattered, and he credited the confusion over the nature of the call to a language barrier.

The residents were home at the time of the attempted burglary, he said. No one was injured during the incident.

There are no suspects in custody, and an investigation into the attempted burglary is ongoing, Marks said.
