Intruders make themselves at home
AVONMORE — Burglars entered a Westmoreland County residence and made themselves at home before leaving with cash and guns.
State police at the Kiski Valley station said the burglars used a kitchen steak knife to open a rear sliding door to the Kristopher Hill residence at 100 Indiana Ave., Avonmore.
Once inside the intruders cooked food on a stovetop, played video games, took a shower, cut the whiskers of the victim’s pet cat and drove the victim’s Chevrolet Blazer.
They also found the keys for two locked gun safes and stole a .40-caliber Ruger handgun, a 12-gauge Mossberg shotgun and a Crossman BB gun and took about $150 worth of change, police said.
Police said the burglary and theft happened between Thursday and Sunday.
