A gas station in Langhorne Borough was hit by burglars this week.
At 1:52 a.m. on Sunday, two suspects gained entry to the Exxon Gas Station at the intersection of North Pine Street (Route 413) and Maple Avenue. The two suspects went toward the area behind the cash registers and took cigarettes, Black and Mild products, Juul pods, and vape accessories, state police said in a statement.
The two suspects also used a grinder to cut open a safe and steal thousands of dollars before breaking open the cash registers and stealing cash, state police said.
The suspects – one carrying a duffle bag with stolen goods – fled out a back door and went through a wooden fence to an alleyway, state police said.
Investigators reported that the two suspects may have fled in a waiting vehicle that was at the corner of National Avenue and North Pine Street.
The burglary was captured on a surveillance system at the gas station, according to troopers.
The two suspects were described as wearing dark-colored hoodies. One suspect had a face mask, dark-colored pants, and work boots. The other suspect was described as a white male with short hair and wearing dark-colored pants, state police said.
Anyone in the area with surveillance images of the suspect’s vehicle from early Sunday has been asked to call investigating Trooper Migliaccio at 215-942-3900.
