Burglar Steals Items from Storage Area at Old City Condo

A brazen bandit followed a resident into a storage facility at an Old City condominium complex last week and stole several items from storage bins, police said.

Police on Thursday released surveillance video of the burglary, which happened Thursday, April 7 just after 6 p.m., in hopes that the public will be able to help them solve the crime.

In the video, the man, whom police described as being in his 40s, having facial hair and wearing a dark hat, dark jacket, jeans and brown boots, is seen sneaking in through a door to the storage facility near 3rd and Race streets and then leaving with his arms full of several items. One of the items he has appears to be a Casio keyboard.

Police said the man broke into more than one storage bin. After the burglary, he fled in an unknown direction.

Anyone who recognizes the man or has information in the burglary should contact Central Detectives at 215-686-3093 or 3094, or text a tip to PPD TIP (773847).
