 Special Police Information

June 24, 2015

 

            East Whiteland Township Police along with other police departments across the county have been experiencing day time residential burglaries. The burglaries are typically committed between 7am and noon, after the actor believes people have left for work.

            The actor is described as an African American Male, 6’00” to 6’02”, with a “construction worker’s build”, short buzzed hair or possibly bald in his late 30s to early 40s. He typically has worn dark clothing, long pants and long shirt, work gloves and tan boots.

            He is operating a black SUV with heavily tinted windows. During most incidents, the actor will park in the victim’s driveway. He then attempts to determine if the homeowner is home by knocking on the front door. After receiving no answer, the actor will then force entry into the residence. In multiple instances, the actor has forced entry into a residence that he believed was unoccupied which has resulted in confrontations with the homeowner.

            Based on the method in which the actor first knocks on the front door of a residence before forcing entry, police believe there are county residents who may have had contact with the suspect. The suspect may have fabricated a story as to why he was knocking at the door if a homeowner answers. Police are asking anyone who has had contact with the suspect or seen the suspect, to contact East Whiteland Detectives at 610-647-2100 or email detectives@eastwhiteland.org.

            East Whiteland Police also want to remind County residents to be vigilant and careful if a stranger is knocking at their door. If they appear suspicious, call police. If a vehicle is involved, please attempt to obtain a license plate without putting themselves at risk.

 PA Seatbelt Law changes

Legislation signed by Governor Corbett in December of 2011 have changed the provisions of Pennsylvania's Seat Belt Law.  One of those changes is specified below 

"Drivers and occupants in a vehicle who are under the age of 18 must wear a properly adjusted and fastened seat belt, and children under the age of eight must be securely fastened in a child restraint system. Failure to comply with the new law’s seat belt provisions is a primary offense, meaning that a driver can be pulled over and cited solely for that violation."  Additional Information can be found in this HANDOUT or on PennDOT's website
