Police have arrested one man in connection with a burglary that took place in the township on Wednesday.

Police said that a home in the first block of Nectar Lane was broken into after one of the homeowners left the residence on Sept. 17. The incident is believed to have taken place between 7:55 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. When one of the homeowners returned to let the dog out it was at that point that he noticed a first floor window was removed from a frame and a rear bedroom ransacked. The homeowner also found that a jewelry box on the second floor of the home had also been searched, police said.

Taken was $500 in U.S. currency, numerous pieces of jewelry, the wife's social security card from a metal safe. Additionally the suspect, identified as David J. Frost, 33, of Morrisville, is alleged to have taken a Black American Tactical Firearms .45 1911 handgun from a tool bag that was in a bedroom closet.

Police said that the homeowners informed them that the neighbors brother, later ID'd as Frost, had recently moved in next door. Police said the neighbor advised them that Frost was having "legal issues."

Police said they checked, an Internet based search for pawn transactions and activity. They found that on Thursday Frost sold three rings at 12:08 p.m. to Kensington Gold and Silver Exchange on the 1800 block of East Allegheny Avenue in Philadelphia. A picture was attached to the transaction and police showed the photo to the homeowner. Police said the homeowners identified the rings as belonging to them.

Frost was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking, police said.
