Deputy Jason Winston with the Greene County Sheriff’s Office says it appears the burglar knew the layout of the property. Surveillance video shows him on February 21 wandering the halls of Springhouse Village East just before 6:00 p.m. The building was still under construction at the time. The construction site manager told investigators he discovered someone had disconnected a few security cameras. Then after going through the building, he realized the intruder had stolen computer equipment.
