State Police in Frackville have released surveillance images of a person they believe is a suspect in a recent home break-in in Schuylkill County.

The images above and below are from what police describe as a burglary in progress at 154 S. Spencer St., West Mahanoy Township. It happened around 4:43 p.m. on Saturday, March 11.

Whoever lives at that residence was not home at the time of this alleged break-in but they were alerted to the intruder’s presence from their surveillance system.

The victim of the alleged break-in notified their neighbor, who then went to check on the situation.

The would-be burglar got away on foot, running out of the residence. The neighbor attempted to chase them down on foot, too, but eventually lost sight of them.
