Burglars continue to target camper trailers at south central Pennsylvania campgrounds, according to the Lancaster New Era.

Eight camper trailers parked at the Elizabethtown-Hershey KOA Campground, 1890 Turnpike Road, Elizabethtown, were broken into sometime between May 12 and Friday evening, Northwest Regional police reported.

Thieves pried open six doors and forced open two windows to gain access to the camper trailers, police said. Three DVD players, DVDs, a leaf blower, a set of barbecue grilling tools and food were taken. Loss was estimated at $550.

In a separate incident, four RVs parked at a storage lot at 1259 Cloverleaf Road, Mount Joy, were broken into between Friday and Saturday morning, Northwest Regional police said. Doors were pried open. About $160 worth of CDs and loose change were taken.

In addition to the burglaries in West Donegal and Mount Joy townships, other camper trailers have been targeted in the last two months in West Cocalico Township and at campgrounds in the southern part of the county, police reported.
