Lower Mac Vandalism Locks People Out of Their Homes
Police say report of substance poured in door lock is fourth such criminal mischief report in two months in Lower Macungie.
Seems there's a new trend going around Lower Macungie Township these days.
It isn't some new party game, clothing fad or the next gotta-have electronics device.
Instead, the activity increasing in frequency is the act of pouring a substance -- at this point unidentified by police -- into a door lock and making it inoperable. According to state police at Fogelsville, the most recent incident occurred between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Sept. 28 at Valley Ridge Apartments along Lower Macungie Road.
Police said this is the fourth such incident reported within the past two months.
Another of the recent incidents occurred Sept. 15, also at Valley Ridge Apartments, 6714 Lower Macungie Road, Apt. D7, police said.
Call it a prank or call it revenge, but police call it criminal mischief and those caught will be receiving a citation complete with a fine.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 610-395-1438.
