Towamencin police seeking stolen firearm

Towamencin police seeking stolen firearm



Towamencin Township Police in Montgomery County are investigating the case of a firearm reported stolen on Aug. 17, police Chief Tim Dickinson said today.

The weapon, a black .38-caliber Taurus revolver, was taken sometime between 3 and 6 a.m. from a black Chrysler 300 sedan while it was parked in the lot of the Wawa Store at 200 Forty Foot Rd., Dickinson said.

The theft was not reported to police until Aug. 25 because the owner was unsure of the gun’s location. The owner told police he or she was unsure if the vehicle was locked at the time. No forced entry was reported.

Anyone with information may contact police at 215-368-7606.
