CHARLESTOWN

CRASH

The crash occurred as Kristin Rowe in a 2005 Dodge Neon was traveling on SR 29 in the northbound lane of travel. At this time, Rowe attempted to negotiate a right curve in the roadway. The vehicle began to hydroplane in the northbound lane due to the wet roadway conditions. Rowe attempted to regain control of the vehicle but in doing so, overcompensated the right curve in the northbound lane of SR 29. The vehicle went approx. 2 feet off the east side of SR 29 and struck an embankment, and a reflective roadside marker pole. The embankment acted like a ramp and caused the vehicle to overturn. The vehicle landed on its roof in between the north and southbound lanes on SR 29 and approx. 20 feet from the initial point of impact. As a result of the impact, the vehicle sustained visible disabling damage to the vehicle right headlight, front bumper, front windshield, roof, hood, driver's side front/rear doors, left front/rear fender, left front/rear quarter panels, and left front/rear rims. The vehicle came to a final rest position in between the north and southbound lanes of SR 29 facing an easterly direction. There were no injuries as a result of the crash

TREDYFFRIN

BUGLARY/CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY ARRESTS

A minor "suspicious person" incident which occurred on Oct. 31, 2009, led to the eventual arrest of Thomas Hawthorne, Jr., 27 of Bensalem for burglary and related charges after an attempt to steal wire from the PECO facility in Berwyn. Eric Rossiter, 25, of Philadelphia was arrested for criminal conspiracy and related offenses.

On Oct. 31 at 1:30 a.m., while on patrol, police made contact with Hawthorne, who was seen coming from beyond the wood line near the PECO facility. It was later confirmed by PECO security that several coils of wire had been damaged. The rubber coating had been spliced, apparently in an attempt to determine the type of metal contained within the coating. A knife in Hawthorne's possession on the 31st was also linked to the crime.

Follow-up investigation yielded confessions for the last three burglaries of the Berwyn yard. Hawthorne admitted to selling the metals to a scrap dealer on Marlborough Street in Philadelphia. PECO follow-up determined that Hawthorne has been visiting with large amounts of metal frequently. Hawthorne related that he conducted his burglaries mostly on Friday and Saturday evenings. His connection to our yard was through one visit approximately two years ago as a sub-contractor with Henkels and McCoy.

Co-conspirator Eric Rossiter, who drove Hawthorne to the site of the recent attempt, was scheduled to pick him up when the theft was completed. Rossiter was arrested and charged with criminal conspiracy. Hawthorne and Rossiter were arraigned before Judge Tartaglio and bail for each was set at $5,000.
