LOWER MORELAND, Pa. (CBS) — Lower Moreland police are releasing surveillance pictures from a burglary earlier this month, hoping someone will recognize the suspects whom they say robbed the same man twice that day.

Police say the victim was robbed by two men while sitting in his car in Southwest Philadelphia late in the afternoon of April 17th.

The suspects took his phone, cash, and wallet, which police say contained his address.

Four hours later, according to investigators, four men showed up at his Huntingdon Valley apartment complex and emptied his unit.

“They forced their way into the front door and then they took items of clothing, electronics, jewelry, cash,” says Lower Moreland detective Carl Molt.  “The victim reports approximately $62,000 worth of items taken.”

On surveillance video, police say, one man enters the lobby of the Huntingdon Place apartments and approaches the front desk.  Cameras also show three other men loading up a Hyundai in the parking garage, then leaving.

The victim reported the crime when he returned home after talking to Philadelphia police about the robbery earlier in the day.
