In addition to pending DUI charges for the intoxicated man who drove to the Northampton Township Police Department to complain about being fired from his job, police reported to incidents of underage drinking, burglary and another DUI.
Burglary – Residential - Forced
Unit block of Woodstream Drive
On Tuesday, Dec. 11 a resident of the unit block of Woodstream Drive reported having returned home at 5:30 p.m. to find that some had forced entry in to the home. The last family member left the house at about 8:30 a.m. A laptop computer was taken from the home.
Lark Drive by Cameron Drive
On Wednesday, Dec. 12 an officer who was on patrol at 2:20 a.m. came upon three males walking on Lark Drive by Cameron Drive. The officer stopped to speak with them. While speaking with the subjects an officer detected the odor of alcoholic beverages on one of them—an 18-year-old from Newtown—who admitted to having been drinking. The subject will be cited via mail for the liquor law violation.
600 block of Jacksonville Road
On Dec. 15 around 12:20 a.m., an officer on patrol observed a vehicle traveling south on Jacksonville Road being operated in an erratic manner. The vehicle was stopped and the driver identified as a 53-year-old woman from Glenside. Observations of the lady by the officer, along with her inability to successfully complete a series of field dexterity tests, led to her being taken into custody on suspicion of having been driving while under the influence. She was transported to the Saint Mary Medical Center where samples of her blood were obtained for analysis. Following the blood test, she was brought to Northampton Township Police Department Headquarters and processed before being released to a family member. Charges relating to DUI are pending the lab report.
