More Burglaries Reported in Newtown Township

A home on Liberty Drive was burglarized Monday and police believe thieves attempted to gain entry into a home on Bayshore Drive Friday.

Newtown Township Police are looking into a burglary on Liberty Drive, as well as another attempted burglary on Bayshore Drive.

According to police, a home on Liberty Drive was burglarized at some point during the day Monday. The victim told responding officers that when she came home from being out for a few hours, jewelry was missing and the basement door was not functioning properly. The investigation has been turned over to detectives. 

Liberty Drive is located off Swamp Road across from Bucks County Community College.

On Friday morning, police were dispatched to a home on Bayshore Drive for a report of a burglar alarm. The first officer checked the exterior of the home and discovered that a ground floor window had been tampered with but it did not appear that entry into the home was gained.

The homeowner was not home at the time, but came home to walk through the house with police in order to confirm that no entry was gained, police said.

Newtown Township Police are also investigating three home burglaries that occurred recently in Newtown Grant last week. On Monday, Nov. 19 a residence on Hyacinth Court was burglarized sometime during the day.

Then, the night of Nov. 23 a resident of Quince Circle told police that while they were away for a few days, someone forced a side door open and gained entry into their home.  

Upon receiving that report, officers conducted a canvas of the neighborhood. During that canvas, they discovered a second home on Quince Circle had been burglarized. 

In a Facebook post Tuesday, police asked residents to be vigilant in light of the recent burglaries. “We ask that all our residents in Newtown Township and Wrightstown Township pay extra attention to any suspicious vehicles or people that are seen in their neighborhoods and report them to the police department immediately by calling 911.”

Police also offered some tips to deter potential thieves:

  • Leave the lights on or put them on timers
  • Ask neighbors to help keep an eye on your home when you’re away
  • Collect all newspapers and don’t let them pile up in the driveways
  • Have someone you trust collect your mail during any extended periods away
  • Contact the police department when you go away to set up courtesy vacation checks of your home 

Anyone with non-emergency information regarding these incidents should call the township police department at (215) 579-1000.

With the economy in free fall and people being desperate, big city problems will start making their way into Newtown. Couple that with the fact that the the Township has not added any cops to the ranks in over 10 years and the population has continued to grow...this will soon become common place.

Home invasions and home burglaries are increasing rapidly. These thugs know that there is less of a chance getting caught burglarizing a home then robbing businesses. So stay safe, be vigilant, install deadbolts and keep alarm activated. If you don't have an alarm system try www.homesecurityalarms.net for the most affordable monitored alarm system in the nation.
