The Washington County Sheriff's Department is asking victims of recent daytime burglaries to call Investigator Greg Alton to see if items - many of them apparent holiday gifts - recovered recently during the execution of search warrants belong to them.
Alton said the department, along with Pennsylvania State Police's Gettysburg, Chambersburg and McConnellsburg barracks, have been conducting an investigation into daytime burglaries that have been occurring since the first week of December and possibly since November. In the burglaries, doors have been kicked open to homes and presents have been stolen.
"As a result of the investigation, we have recovered property that we believe has been stolen but we haven't found victims for it yet. This property includes wrapped Christmas presents and unwrapped presents," Alton said.
One of the presents recovered says "To Mommy from Ally," he said. "We've also recovered Barbie items that we know have been wrapped at one time."
