Police Trying To Locate Owners Of Four Bikes
Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
The Police Department is asking the community for information about four bikes (see pictures below) found on Butler Pike on July 3.
On July 3 at 3:34 a.m., police received a call of several suspicious persons on bikes in a back yard in the unit block of Norristown Rd. When officers arrived, they located four bikes in a driveway in the 1100 block of Butler Pike but no subjects.
At 5:15 a.m., an Ambler Borough officer located two subjects and it was determined that they were part of the group that left the bikes in the driveway on Butler Pike. It appears that the individuals had been entering unlocked vehicles and stealing items from inside. Police recovered a gold belt buckle, change and a white iPhone with a picture of two children on it.
Tajmere Mack-Fischer of Philadelphia, two 17-year-old juvenile males from Ambler and a 15-year-old juvenile male from Ambler are being charged with theft and receiving stolen property.
Detectives are trying to locate the owners of the four bikes that were abandoned in the 1100 block of Butler Pike as it appears that they were stolen. If anyone has any information regarding the ownership of these bikes, please contact the Detective Division at 610-279-9033.

Supervisors Honor Eagle Scout
Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday night passed a resolution honoring Township resident Patrick McInerney for completing a community service project that helped him earn the rank of Eagle Scout.
As part of the project, Patrick enlisted the help of a group of volunteers to install stencils on Township storm sewer inlets. The stencils include the message "No Dumping, Drains To Creek."
In a six-hour time span, the volunteers installed 172 stencils encompassing almost 11% of all Township owned storm sewer inlets. The Township's Engineering Department assisted Patrick and the volunteers throughout the project.
Upon completion of this project, the Township has now installed storm sewer inlet stencils on 95% of the 1,578-Township owned inlets.
Out Is In During National Park And Recreation Month
Wed, Jul 2nd, 2014
If you're feeling cramped and you don't get to spend enough time outside, you're not the only one. Nearly three in ten US adults do not spend time outside on a daily basis. Of those who do, almost half spend less than 30 minutes in the fresh air according to a new survey released by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). That's why during July, the Township and NRPA are challenging everyone to get out and visit their community parks and recreation during National Park and Recreation Month.
This year's theme, "OUT is IN," encourages individuals, families, friends and coworkers to do something outside everyday that they would normally do inside. From picnicking in the park instead of sitting inside at a table to sending an email or even holding a meeting outside, there are small ways you can make going OUT part of your daily routine. The parks and facilities run by the Township offer ample opportunities to go OUTside, get INspired, change your OUTlook and get INvolved.
