ROCHESTER MILLS, Pa. (AP) - State police say someone got away with a lot of change when they burglarized a rural western Pennsylvania home. About $10,000 worth.

Troopers from the Punxsutawney barracks say the North Mahoning Township homeowner discovered the money missing in late September but says it could have been taken at any time since February.

Police say the man had the money stored in six or seven red plastic Folgers coffee containers and a 5-gallon glass jug. Police say there was about $5,000 in the coffee containers and the same amount in the jug.

The township is about 55 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
