LOWER PAXTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) A man was seen pushing a safe across Jonestown Road in Lower Paxton, Pa. around 2:45 Monday morning.

Here now, the rest of the story (thank you, Paul Harvey).

Police believe that the "safe crossing" incident is linked to the robbery of a local Dunkin' Donuts. The store was broken into early that morning and a surveillance tape shows a man emptying cash drawers and removing the safe.

Then, shortly after the robbery, a witness called police to report suspicious activity - a man wearing black clothing was pushing an unopened safe across the road.

When police responded to the call, the suspect was nowhere to be found. They did, however, recover the safe, abandoned and unopened, in a nearby restaurant parking lot.

Lieutenant Gary Seefeldt of the Lower Paxton Police Department said that based on the helpful surveillance video, he believes the intruder likely knew details of the Dunkin' Donuts interior...and although he is still safe, he could soon be sorry.
