Allentown police found a Toyota 4Runner one day after it was stolen—by gunpoint—from a Bushkill Township home.
The red 2012 Toyota 4Runner was found around 1:15 a.m. Thursday in the Fountain Park Swimming Pool's parking lot, which is on the 900 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
There were no occupants inside the vehicle, according to police, and no one was found nearby.
The investigation is ongoing.
Two Bushkill Township residents awoke early Wednesday to three armed Hispanic men kicking open their bedroom door, according to police.
The residents were held at gunpoint as items were stolen from their home. Neither victim was injured, police say.
Police were dispatched around 1:08 a.m. to the 700 block of W. High Street for a report of an armed home invasion.
The two residents, who were sleeping, reported their locked bedroom door being kicked open and entered by three Hispanic males. The victims called police several minutes after the men left the home.
Several items were removed from the home and the victim’s vehicle was stolen.
The men are believed to be armed and dangerous.
