Huntingdon Valley home burglaries covered by Fox29, residents interviewed

Residents of Huntingdon Valley are “on edge” after three burglaries in less than a month, according to recent coverage by Fox29 Philadelphia.

“It’s definitely scary,” resident Laura Rymar said. “I just figured this is a safe area, safe neighborhood. That’s why we chose to raise the kids here. [I] Lock the doors all the time and have my phone on hand. I have mace and I have things in the house for protection. I’m thinking of getting a big guard dog.”

The burglaries have occurred on August 5, between Saturday, July 22 and Sunday, July 30, and July 11.

“Things keep getting crazier and crazier. People going to greater lengths to get what they want and to bypass whatever security people are putting in place,” resident Nick Iagovino said. “It’s alarming. A lot of people in this neighborhood have kids. I’ll be taking some extra measures knowing these things are going on. Also to just keep an eye out all times of the day and to tell my neighbors, too.”

In one case, the burglars took the home’s entire surveillance system.
