That’s where authorities say the suspect, described as a heavy-set male, went into an unlocked vehicle and found a remote which he used to open the garage door.

According to investigators, the suspect then entered the home, but ran off when he was approached by the homeowner.

“She gave a short chase but then turned around, and realized it was an unsafe situation. As she was heading back to the residence she heard what she believed to be a gunshot,” said Upper Dublin Deputy Police Chief Daniel Wade.

Police say the suspect fired one shot as he fled the scene.

No one was reported injured in the shooting.

Officials believe the man drove off in a late 2000’s Ford Expedition.

Investigators say he was actually caught on a surveillance camera rifling through another car in the neighborhood. Wade says it’s simple — people need to play it safe and lock their cars.

“Can very often take away an opportunity for a criminal to commit these crimes,” said Wade.
