Press Release: July 8, 2013
At approximately 1347 hrs on Monday, 07/01/13 a Lower Moreland Police Officer stopped a light blue Honda Odyssey minivan traveling west on Sunflower Way from the area of Clover Road. The Honda was observed to have New Jersey inspection stickers with a PA registration plate, PA JHT0899. The occupants were unable to provide a legitimate reason for being present in this neighborhood and their stories changed several times.
A police scanner was located inside the vehicle and it was set to the Lower Moreland frequency and actively scanning other nearby jurisdictions. Criminal history and NCIC/PCIC checks were conducted on all three occupants. All three were found to have extensive criminal histories including burglaries, robberies, gun charges and violent crimes.
Further information was developed which revealed the three males are possible persons of interest related to home invasion robberies/burglaries of business owners of Asian descent. It is possible the three males were actively casing a potential target home.
The Lower Moreland Police Department believes it is important to keep our citizens aware so they may stay on alert for potential issues occurring in their neighborhood. If these subjects, vehicle, or any other suspicious activity is observed in the area, do not make contact with them and please contact 911 immediately.
