Cops: Jenkintown burglar made coffee before crime

Abington Township Police Department

An apparently tired thief brewed himself a cup of coffee before burglarizing a Jenkintown business Thursday night, police said.

The suspect parked a pickup truck in the lot of Bryner Chevrolet, located at 1750 The Fairway, shortly before 8 p.m.

He pulled on the doors of businesses until he found one that had been mistakenly left unlocked, police said.

The man allegedly entered the business and made himself a cup of coffee before rifling through several toolboxes and selecting tools. Police said he loaded the tools into his truck and left the area.

The truck is believed to be a green Ford Ranger with a red and black bumper and yellow discoloration on the rear tailgate, according to investigators. At the time of the burglary, the vehicle was carrying a lawnmower in the truck bed.

The suspect is described as a clean-shaven male in his 30s with very short black hair. He was last seen wearing a green t-shirt, plaid shorts and sneakers.

Anyone with information on the suspect or crime is asked to contact the Abington Township Police Department at 267-536-1100.
