Burglars busy around Valley

MIDDLEBURG — Three Valley businesses were hit this weekend by burglars who got away with money, power tools and alcohol just days before Christmas.

Early Friday, Mindy’s Tavern, on Route 405 in West Chillisquaque Township, was burglarized by someone who broke into the bar through a rear window.

The thief removed money from a jukebox, a 32-inch television and various bottles of alcohol, police said. The estimated losses and damage total $1,000, police said.

Also in the early morning hours Friday, at Kohl’s Stony Hill Tree Farm in Liberty Township, police said four people  forcibly entered the business and attempted to enter a safe but were unsuccessful.

They were successful in taking two Dewalt power drills and batteries, three digital cameras, two jars of donation money for the Children’s Miracle Network and a two-foot tall stuffed fawn, police said.

The thieves also removed some surveillance equipment, but police are using remaining footage to gather better descriptions of the burglars, police said.

Late Friday night into Saturday, thieves broke in a basement window at the First United Church of Christ in Middleburg between 11 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Saturday, proceeding through the church before grabbing an unknown amount of cash from the Children’s Sunday School Fund, according to police.

The burglars then broke into an office and stole church documents from a fire safe before fleeing, police said.

Anyone with information on the first two incidents is asked to call state police at Milton at 524-2662, and anyone with information about the church break-in is asked to call state police at Selinsgrove, at 374-8145.
