PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - Police are investigating a number of bizarre crimes in East Kensington. Police say someone is taking numbers off of people's address signs.
Surveillance video shows a woman stealing of all things the number zero from the address marker of a home on the 2200 block of Amber Street in East Kensington.
Meghan Haley noticed it was missing yesterday and that's when she checked her camera footage.
"It has no value so I can't imagine what they are using it for," she told FOX 29.
And Meghan is not the only victim by any means. Just walk around the neighborhood and as many 20 homes are missing zeros and ones from the facades of their homes.
Krista Ricca had her zero stolen two weeks ago. She says she saw a man stealing the neighbors number one from across the street.
"I woke up at 4 a.m. I'm a nurse. I heard a lot of noise. I saw a big power drill and a man stealing the number," she explained.
So why might "one" do this? Scott Fisher had his zero pried off the front of his house on East Susquehanna Avenue.
"It's kind of weird. I don't know if someone is trying to send a message or someone just has an obsession with zeros and ones," he said.
The victims believe that a man and woman are involved in the thefts.
