A single-shot rifle was among the valuables taken in the recent burglary of a Bryn Mawr house whose owner has been vacationing in Florida, Lower Merion police said in a media briefing Tuesday.
One of the children of the absent Woodleave Road resident that had been checking on the empty house occasionally discovered evidence of the break-in Saturday afternoon.
When exactly the break-in happened was not clear, though two neighbors each reported seeing a medium-complected man and white vehicle at or around the property on Friday.
A wooden door had been pried open, significantly damaging the frame and its interior surroundings, police said.
Other than the rifle, several watches and a digital camera were taken, police said.
Anyone with information about the burglary can call township police at 610-649-1000.
