Commissioner Brown was good enough to send out an update to her constituents and one forwarded this to me:

I wanted to give you an update on the two criminal incidents that occurred in Ward 2 last week. I want all to be reassured that while crime may happen in our community from time to time, our fine law enforcement are committed to protecting us and they are showing the results of their commitment.

As you will recall, the first incident was at 3:45 am on June 9, when four suspects broke into a car in a Gladwyne driveway. The homeowner called LMPD which responded in force, dispatching 10 police officers into Gladwyne. The vehicle and four suspects were stopped soon thereafter and the LMPD officers took the suspects into custody.

After the suspects were arrested, LMPD called District Justice Schireson to alert him to the situation and to request that he issue a search warrant for the suspects’ car. After reviewing the affidavit of probable cause prepared by LMPD, Judge Schireson approved the search warrant and the search of the vehicle revealed property that appeared to have been stolen from multiple locations in both New Jersey and Montgomery County. The police are in the process of sorting through all of the stolen items (including credit cards, electronic devices, rings and other property). I understand that Judge Schireson will hold a hearing on the charges on June 23.

The second incident occurred on June 12 at 3 p.m. when a homeowner pulled into her driveway and noted a strange car parked in her driveway and that the glass on her front door was shattered. She called 911 and the suspects, whose car was blocked in her driveway by her car, ran. One was picked up immediately afterward by officers near the victim's property and the other suspect ran into a nearby wooded area; the police set up a perimeter and used a police dog to track the suspect in the wooded area. When the officer announced he was going to let the dog off his leash, the suspect called out of the dense brush indicating his willingness to surrender. The suspect had drugs and items stolen from the house. Each suspect is being held on $200,000 bail and the hearing will again be before Judge Schireson on June 23.

We are very fortunate to have such professional and dedicated law enforcement keeping us safe.

LMPD does good work and responds quickly. Its real success is in prevention and the alertness of the officers on the street.

Radnor Commissioner Fisher sent out this note today:

I hope this email finds you well.

On Wednesday night in the Garrett Hill area several cars were entered and personal property was stolen. Cell phones, MP3 players, GPS navigation units and laptops are of great interest to thieves because they are small and sell fast. Please do your part and remain diligent by locking your cars, and securing your home's doors and windows when ever possible.

The community's eyes, ears and care can end this problem so please report any suspicious activity to Radnor Police by calling 911.

Regards,
John

Its good that Commissioner Fisher is proactive in this area. I get the sense that some of the other Commissioners in Radnor don't even know how to use a computer. I've seen Commissioner Spingler hit himself in the face multiple times with his own microphone. Sad, really.

ha! i was thinking that i was the only one who saw spingler do that. he is constantly assaulting his own face with the mic - ive seen him hit his own forehead, his teeth, his chin, his nose, and its even more funny cause the mic makes a loud 'booof' sound every time he does it. they should really get him a clip-on mic (though shades of 'naked gun' come to mind, if spingler ever decided to take a bathroom break, and forgot to take the mic off).

Politeia - ChickenSandwich is not exaggerating. I think Spingler is subconsciously engaging in self-flaggalation, because deep down he knows he should be punished for what comes out of his mouth during the meetings, like, "Dave Bashore is an extraordinary human being - I will write him a letter of reccomendation!!"

This is good information for those of us who live near Radnor but not in Radnor. Informative and appropriately critical.
