On 22 March 2017 at approximately 1154 hrs. Officers from Lancaster Bureau of Police Platoon D responded to a complaint of a burglary that had just occurred at a residence on the 800 blk. S. Lime St. A neighbor reported seeing (2) unknown males leaving a residence while carrying a black box. The males got into a vehicle and left the scene prior to call for Police response.
The homeowner/ victim came to the scene and confirmed that no one was supposed to be in the home. The victim discovered that a safe containing jewelry and valuable items had been taken from inside the home.
Officers processed the scene. They located signs of forced entry to the home. Off. Kaminski located droplets of blood at the area where entry had been forced. That blood evidence was collected. The blood evidence was sent to the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Forensic Services/ Forensic DNA in Greensburg, PA.
