Police report daytime burglary in Harris Township

State College police are investigating a burglary in Harris Township.

Officers responded to a report Monday at a Rosslyn Road home that items, including jewelry, were missing from the residence.

The homeowners told police that they were doing yard work between 3 and 4 p.m. and left their garage doors open as they worked. They noticed a “suspicious, slow-moving” gray SUV, possibly a Honda CRV, drive past their home twice and eventually park along the road a short distance away.

The driver exited the vehicle while the passenger, described as appearing to be in his 20s and wearing a baseball cap, remained, the owners told police. They found the items missing when they went back in the home about 4 p.m., police said.

Another resident also observed the SUV as it drove along Rosslyn Road, police said.

Anyone with information that might be helpful is asked to contact the State College police.

Police are urging all residents to be alert and aware of any suspicious activity in your neighborhood and report it in a timely manner by phone at 234-7150, by email at, or via anonymous tip on the police web site at
