Thief Targets Chesco Detective's Home: Police



    Police are on the hunt for a career crook after he allegedly targeted one of their own.

    Last Friday, a suspect burglarized the home of a Chester County Detective, stealing $15,000 worth of jewelry, electronics and Christmas presents.

    Police believe that 36-year-old Shane Hopkins is responsible for the crime as well as another home burglary in the area.

    Hopkins is an alleged career criminal who spent more than a dozen years in prison for burglary. Investigators also say that in addition to his warrant in Ridley Township, he’s also wanted in the state of Virginia.
