VIDEO: Burglar Surrenders at WPVI Studios

By Merrill Knox 

A burglar who targeted gas stations in the Upper Merion Township area of Pennsylvania turned himself in at WPVI yesterday.

The Philadelphia ABC O&O ran surveillance video of the man, Anthony Thomas, burglarizing a gas station on Monday. Yesterday, Thomas arrived at the WPVI studios and identified himself as the man in the footage.


“I basically came here to turn myself in to the proper authorities because I did something and I’m regretting it,” Thomas told the station (video above).

Thomas was taken into custody by police, who formally charged him with burglary, theft and related offenses this morning.
