Springfield Residents Warned Of Strong-Arm Robberies — Springfield, Pa. residents received a recorded warning, yesterday, April 18, from Police Chief Joe Daly regarding teenagers interfering with traffic, throwing rocks at trolleys, using drugs and drinking, and, most disconcertingly, committing strong-armed robbery.
He noted that when caught they will be prosecuted according to law. If the teens are township residents, as is likely, their parents will have received the message along with their neighbors and the odds are the behavior will be curtailed either voluntarily or via arrests and prosecutions.
This is very good proactive policing and township governance.
Springfield, by the way, has a curfew for teens running from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and starting 11:59 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and national holidays.
