This e-mail came from Commissioner Brown. At least she has her priorities straight and is always forthcoming with township residents. Would that ALL followed her excellent lead...if you live in Lower Merion, does your commissioner keep you apprised of things like this?
I wanted to alert you to an incident in Gladwyne/Penn Valley on Friday. At about 3 p.m., a resident returned home and observed an unfamiliar car parked in her driveway and her front glass door was shattered. She called 911 from her car and while she was doing that, a man came out of her house, jumped in the car and tried to leave, but got his car stuck when he tried to get around her. He then fled on foot as did a second man. LMPD, with the help of one of the police dogs and State Police who were in the area for a funeral, caught both men who have been charged with numerous offenses.
Certainly, this incident is of concern, especially so soon after the incident on Tuesday morning. But it is good to know that our excellent police force is right on top of these situations. You might recall that the Police Superintendent attended a recent Civic Association meeting and gave safety tips which we should all keep in mind. LMPD asks that you not hesitate to call them if you see anything out of the ordinary or of concern. The emergency number is 9-1-1 and the non-emergency number is 610-649-1000.
