Criminal Mischief

Three paintings hanging in Penn Medicine at Radnor on King of Prussia Road were discovered keyed on Sept. 8. The paintings are valued at a total of $2,600.

A customer getting gas at Lukoil on Lancaster Avenue in Wayne expressed his anger at the gas station’s prices by throwing the gas nozzle to the ground and slamming it twice into the cradle after filling up his car, according to a police report. The incident took place on Sept. 8 around 6:30 p.m. An error message at the register revealed a problem at that pump after the man left. Police called a 45-year-old Oxford, Chester County man and asked if he had damaged the pump; the man denied damaging anything.

A woman reported that her car was keyed when it was parked on Louella Avenue south of Windermere Avenue in Wayne on Aug. 21.



A Windermere Avenue resident reported Sept. 4 that false purchases were made on Sept. 3 at a Walgreens and a Publix in Florida with her credit card number.  A few days earlier she had left her credit card at Chili’s in Wayne; she eventually got her card back from the restaurant.

A resident of Highland Court in Wayne reported Sept. 4 that she is the victim of welfare fraud, in which someone reported income using her Social Security Number.

Radnor Patch ISN'T About Radnor Anymore :( September 19, 2012 at 04:25 PM
Radnor must be a boring place....never any reports of a man walking in on his wife & his best friend or vice versa. Heck it happens everyday on TV, just watch 15 minutes of any soap opera :)
