LANSDALE, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in Montgomery County are investigating whether the same person is to blame for two burglaries in which the suspect rappelled into the stores.

Police tell WPVI-TV (https://6abc.cm/2l25HNh ) that a burglar rappelled into a Lansdale deli through the building’s roof vent using a rope around 4 a.m. last Wednesday. Officials say the suspect then smashed a hole in the store’s office wall and stole cash along with a handgun.

Investigators say the individual who ransacked a Costco in Lower Merion last week had rappelled from a 40-foot skylight.

The investigation is ongoing.
