Thief Enters Hatfield Business Through Roof

Once inside the closed business, the suspect attempted to enter the office by way of a claw hammer. Police say when that failed to work, the suspect smashed the dry wall and entered. Police say the intruder fled with a handgun. Anyone with information is urged to call Hatfield Township Police
