Township officials reponded to an attempted robbery on Monday, according to a release from Lower Merion township.
On March 26th, 2012 at 9:33 am a resident of the 100 block of Rolling Road in Penn Wynne was asleep when she was awakened by the sound of someone tampering with her outside water irrigation system.
The report says that she then heard a loud bang at her front door and went to her window where she saw a gold or silver sedan-style vehicle parked in her driveway facing the street.
She went to the top of her stairs and saw pieces of her front door and doorframe scattered on the floor inside the house. While going down the stairs she saw the vehicle drive off southbound towards Manoa Road. She could not see the vehicle s occupants.
The vehicle described in this incident is similar to a description of a gold Mercury Marquis which has been observed at the scene of burglaries and attempted burglaries in Lower Merion Township and several other jurisdictions.
This vehicle had a paper registration tag displaying Pa. HXN-4039, in the rear window of the car. In past incidents the vehicle has been observed occupied by several black males.
Residents are encouraged to immediately report any suspicious vehicles or persons in their neighborhood to the police by calling 9-1-1
