    Police Seek Crowbar-Wielding Burglar Who Stole Loaded Gun From Andorra Apartment
    Philadelphia Police
    Recognize this guy or this car? Police are looking for both in connection with a burglary in Andorra in which a loaded gun was stolen.

    A crowbar-wielding burglar broke into an apartment in Philadelphia's Andorra neighborhood and stole a Glock handgun, police said. Now, investigators are searching for the burglar and the stolen gun.

    Police said the bandit used a crowbar to force the door open at a home in the Woodmere Apartments, on Henry Avenue near Port Royal, about 2:40 p.m. March 23. Once inside, the burglar stole a fully loaded Glock 17C 9mm handgun.

    Surveillance video from the apartment complex captured a champagne-colored 2004 Mitsubishi Galant sedan with tinted windows drop off a heavyset man carrying a shoulder bag, according to police. Police said they believe the driver of the car acted as a lookout while the heavyset man burglarized the apartment.

    Police said the suspect entered the building and returned to the car a number of times before security for the complex showed up and scared off the suspects. The sedan was last seen driving southbound on Henry Avenue.

    Police on Monday released surveillance video showing the car and the suspected burglar.
