Muncy, Pa. — An unknown male suspect broke into a Muncy Creek Township jewelry store and then fled to a nearby resident’s garage, according to police.

State police at Montoursville say shortly after 6 am March 22 the suspect broke the glass on the front door and broke two front windows at JL Winters Jewelers store on John Brady Drive. The suspect then reached into the window and removed items from the store, according to Trooper Brian Moore.

Police said the suspect fled on foot heading east toward Muncy Borough. At that time, the suspect broke the garage door window at a home near the crime scene. The suspect unlocked the garage door but the homeowner told police it appeared he did not take anything, according to Moore.

The suspect was wearing a dark-colored jacket with a hood, blue jeans, and boots. The boots were mainly black with a tan or light brown upper portion that started at the top of the foot and extended up toward the calf.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
