The Seven Valleys Road resident saw two men pull into her driveway around 3:30 and heard one of them say that no one was home, according to police. One of the men then kicked or leaned into the side door hard enough to open it by breaking the locks on the door, police said.

At that point, the homeowner enacted an audible burglar alarm that was installed in the home, which sent a panic signal to an alarm company and caused the men to leave in the vehicle they came in, according to the release. Nothing was taken from the property.

The suspects are described as white males in their mid-20s. One has long hair and was wearing a baseball hat backwards, according to police.

The vehicle they used is described as an older, white, 2-door vehicle, possibly a Toyota Celica or something similar, with a loud muffler exhaust system. They left the area in the direction of Seven Valleys, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (717) 225-1333 ext. 100.
