Huntingdon state police investigate matching burglaries involving pain pills

State police are investigating two Huntingdon County cases of burglary involving pain pills, the same victim and matching suspect descriptions, Trooper Jeffrey Hahn reported Thursday.

Police said a home on Redstone Ridge Road in Penn Township was entered three times between July 24 and Wednesday, and each time pain pills were taken.

Also, police said a motor home parked at the Huntingdon County Fair was burglarized Tuesday between 6:30 and 10:30 p.m. Again, pain pills were missing, police said.

In each case, a suspect has been identified and described as a 44-year-old white man. And in both cases, the victim was identified as the same 70-year-old Hesston man.

The investigations continue.
