PLEASANTVILLE — Three men forced their way into a home on the 100 block of West Reading Avenue on Friday and stole a locked safe, police said.

Neighbors told police that the three escaped in a white vehicle after the incident, which occurred about 11:30 a.m.

As officers investigated, neighbors of an abandoned house on Park Avenue alerted police to noises coming from that building.

Police responded and said they apprehended one potential suspect there and located the still-locked safe outside the house. Police said it contained a large amount of cash and important documents.

Police said they wanted to thank alert residents for their help in the investigation, which is ongoing.
