HORSHAM, Pa. (CBS) — Horsham police want to know if a Bucks County man who is now behind bars in Montgomery County on attempted burglary and related charges is responsible for other unsolved crimes in the area.
Police say Scot Wills was working as an exterminator, which would have given him to access to area homes without much suspicion.
The 53-year-old New Britain, Pa. man was taken into custody Friday afternoon when police responded to a burglary in progress at a home on Meetinghouse Road.
Police arrived too late but set up surveillance on a vehicle and arrested Wills when he returned to the car several hours later.
Police sergeant Larry Bozzomo says they found property in the vehicle leading them to believe he was involved in other crimes.
“We’re hoping that we can possibly find some people that can identify the property that we have in the car,” Bozzomo tells KYW Newsradio. “We put that information and those pictures out to other police agencies hoping they can link to unsolved burglaries they have.”
Bozzomo says some residents may not even realize that items were taken from their homes. Wills remains behind bars in lieu of $50,000 bail.
