Seventeen storage units and four overnight campers were broken into at Moove-In Self Storage in Lancaster County, Pa., sometime between July 12 and July 13, but the thieves made off with nothing more than a TV. That's because 12 of the units were vacant.

The facility manager told the source a person or people used bolt cutters to break through a chain-link fence and walk onto the company's property. Then, the suspect busted padlocks on the units and forced entry into the campers. The manager also thinks motion-sensor lights may have scared away the suspects.

Pennsylvania State Trooper Tony Thomas encourages self-storage tenants to use disc locks because they are much more resistant to bolt cutters. The investigation is still ongoing.
