Two different community outreach buildings were burglarized this week in Atlantic County and police are trying to figure out if the crimes are connected.
On May 16, Egg Harbor Township Officers responded to an alarm at the Police Athletic League (PAL) "Ready to Ride" building on Ridge Avenue. When police arrived, they found the offices had been broken in to and ransacked, with several hundred dollars in damage done to the building. Surveillance video showed suspects involved.
The following day, the Community Food Bank on the Black Horse Pike was also burglarized. A man was caught on surveillance using a cinder block to enter and steal money from the donation bin.
Police are asking anyone with information regarding either of the burglaries to contact Egg Harbor Township Police Department Criminal Investigation Division at 609-926-4051 or Atlantic County Crime Stoppers at 609-652-1234.
