Lancaster Residents Warned ‘Hot Prowl’ Burglar Is On The Loose

LANCASTER ( — Authorities in Lancaster are warning residents about a ‘hot prowl’ burglar.

Detectives believe all ten crimes can be linked to the same suspect.

In each of the burglaries, police said the suspect entered the home through an unlocked door or window.
