Warrington the target of over 2 dozen burglaries, stolen vehicles in less than 24 hours, police say

A Bucks County community has been slammed overnight with burglaries, stolen vehicles and thefts from vehicles.

Police in Warrington said they investigated four residential burglaries, four reports of stolen vehicles and 25 instances of thefts from automobiles from Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Officials said developments that were targeted include Fairways, Pickertown Knoll, Warrington Ridge, Hickory Ridge, Woodspring and Palomino Glen.


Authorities say a group of four individuals seek unlocked vehicles. Once inside a vehicle, if they find a garage door opener, they use that to get inside a house and burglarize it. If they find car keys, they steal the vehicle. Doylestown, New Britain and Solebury are also communities of interest. 

One stolen car was found Wednesday in Doylestown and that car has been recovered. They say another stolen vehicle was seen in Chester City, but that vehicle was not recovered.

The other two vehicles are still missing.

The Warrington Police Department is requesting residents in the affected areas to check their surveillance footage and reach out to BSchaffer@warringtonpd.org if anything suspicious is detected.
