MacBooks Stolen on Maple Avenue
Police say two laptops were stolen from a home on Doylestown's Maple Avenue, the second time in about three weeks.
Two MacBook Pro computers were stolen recently from a home on Maple Avenue, the second theft of Mac laptops from houses on the street in three weeks.
Someone entered a home on the 500 block of Maple Avenue and took the two Macs sometime between 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1 and 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2, according to Doylestown Borough Police.
There were no signs of forced entry into the home, Police Chief Jim Donnelly told Patch.
The residents of the home were home when the theft occurred, but were asleep and didn't hear or see anything, Donnelly said.
This theft follows a similar incident that happened on Jan. 11
On that night, a resident of the 300 block of Maple Avenue reported that someone entered an unlocked rear door and removed a MacBook Pro.
The homeowner was asleep on a couch in the living room when that theft occurred sometime between midnight and 5 a.m., Donnelly said.
Because the thefts happened on the same street, just a few blocks apart, Donnelly said officers will be paying particular attention to Maple Avenue.
"We’ll be concentrating in that area," the police chief said.
The most recent missing laptops are valued at about $2,400, and the one stolen in January at about $1,200.
