Early Friday morning, the Riverside Township police were notified of a burglary to a residence along the 600 block of Jefferson Street.  It was discovered that entry was gained through an unlocked side door and several items were stolen.  At about the same time, officers were also called out to a residence on Hooker St where it was reported that an unlocked garage at that residence along with vehicles parked on the street were also illegally entered and items stolen.
