Police also reported five alcohol-related incidents in the area.

Lower Merion police reported the following incidents to news media at a Monday briefing. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, they do not indicate guilt or a conviction.

Attempted burglary: Between 7:45 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Jan. 15, someone tried to pry open a rear door and window at a home on the first block of Simpson Road in Ardmore, police said. No entry was gained.

Public intoxication: About 2:45 a.m. Jan. 19, a 27-year-old Ardmore man was cited for public intoxication at Cricket and West Athens avenues, police said. Police originally stopped the man because he was wearing all black and running through a neighborhood that had had several reports of suspicious people seen. After speaking with the man—who had continued running after officers asked him to speak with them—police determined he was intoxicated to a degree he was a danger to himself. The man’s blood alcohol content was 0.16, police said.

Attempted burglary: About 6 p.m. Jan. 19, a resident of the 200 block of Athens Avenue in Ardmore told police she had just discovered one of her window screens had been cut and broken. She told police she believed this evidence corresponded to banging sounds she had heard about the same time three days earlier. Police found no evidence of a successful break-in.

DUI: About 12:25 a.m. Jan. 20 at Lancaster Avenue and Booth Lane in Haverford, a 19-year-old Darby man was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, police said. The driver was pulled over in part for speeding; his blood alcohol content was 0.16, police said.
