Public drunkenness: A 21-year-old St. Joe’s student was cited for public drunkenness around 1:59 on Nov. 21, police said.

Public drunkenness: An officer on patrol on Nov. 22 observed a man urinating on the lawn of a building on the 900 block of W Lancaster Ave. in Bryn Mawr, according to police. The officer stopped the man, but the man denied he had been urinating—instead, he told police, he had been texting. He was, however, standing next to a large puddle on the ground, police said. The 24-year-old man was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. His preliminary breath test issued a .14.

DUI and liquor law: An 18-year-old Wynnewood resident was charged with driving under the influence after being stopped in Bryn Mawr on Nov. 22, police said. At 3:58 a.m. a police officer on patrol observed a car drifting in traffic and putting on its turn signal to proceed straight, according to the report. The officer conducted a traffic stop and the vehicle driver, who registered a .174 on a blood alcohol test, was  cited for DUI and underage drinking.

Theft: Forty feet of copper downspouts, valued at $5,500 were stolen from a home on the 600 block of Spring Mill Road in Villanova between 3 p.m. on Nov. 23 and 12:28 p.m. on Nov. 24.

Public drunkenness: A 24-year-old West Conshohocken woman was cited for public drunkenness on Nov. 25, police said. An officer patrolling the area noticed the woman stumbling on Montgomery Ave. The officer was then approached by a taxi driver, who told police that the woman had exited the cab without paying her fare. The woman, police said, produced some money and handed it to the taxi driver. She refused to submit to a breath test, police said.

More great police work by LM police. They always have to insert the one unsolved theft in there to go along with all of the big time public drunkenness busts so that it looks like they actually do real police work.

I agree with your comment regarding the 900 blk of Lancaster Ave and give you credit for your opinion regarding the cops' sobriety. Do you have any connection with these suburban police officers?
