4. Glenn Edwin Hertzog, age 39, of the 100 block of Cottontail Court, Lancaster, PA was cited by Ofc. Mark Burkholder with Harassment on Tuesday, November 5, 2013. At 2100 hours Police were called to the 200 block of Longwood Court West in the Pheasant Ridge Development for a report of a fight. Hertzog had grabbed the 21 year old mother of his child and left red marks on the side of her neck. The 21 year old victim also lives in the Pheasant Ridge Development. Another subject involved in the fight, James A Wheeler, age 29, of no fixed address was taken into custody on an outstanding bench warrant through the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department.

 

5. Jimmy Guastaferro, age 56, of the 200 block of East Main Street, Landisville, PA was cited by Ofc.

Gusataferro was soliciting to do home improvements, such as roofing jobs, without having been issued a permit by the township. This incident occurred at 1547 hours on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. Gusataferro had been dropped off in the neighborhood by a brother who was driving a white Ford work van. The van had placards on the rear and side advertising

D & G Contracting claiming the business is State Certified. A search of the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s website did not yield any results for this business being “registered” as required by the Pennsylvania Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act. Manor Township Police have reason to believe the Gusataferros have been traveling around Lancaster County soliciting to do odd jobs and make home improvements and are asking any victims to please contact their local police department or the Attorney General’s Office. Sgt. Gundel has forwarded all of the information on the subjects to the Attorney General’s Office.

 

And to end on a positive note, last night November 7, 2013 Officer Gary Gardner was promoted to Sergeant and Stephen Bruckno was hired as our newest officer effective November 18, 2013. We wish them both the best in their new endeavors.

A test of his blood later showed Larkie to be under the influence of a controlled substance. DUI charges have been filed through MDJ Keller’s office and a summons requested.

The Department would like to remind the motoring public that DUI

isn’t just for alcohol anymore. Years ago probably 99% of the DUI charges that were brought were related to Alcohol consumption. Currently we are seeing more and more DUI arrests being made due to vehicle operators being under the influence of prescription drugs and/or Controlled Substances. This has brought about additional training for Police Officers in the area of Driving Under the Influence of Drugs. Hence the Drug Recognition Expert or “DRE”. DRE trained officers have received specialized training and are able to evaluate an operator and recognize the probability that they are Driving Under the Influence of some type of Drug or Controlled Substance. Remember, DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence which covers a multitude of substances, not just alcohol. READ your prescription bottles and understand how your medicine may affect your ability to operate a vehicle. This is your responsibility as the operator of a vehicle. Don’t be a danger to the rest of motoring public.

HARASSMENT-On Sat 14 Apr 2013 Officer Mark Burkholder received a complaint from a parent in the Township who reported that an older male, a much older male, was making inappropriate and sexual comments to their 10 year old daughter through the daughter’s Facebook page. Police are looking into the matter however, without getting into the obvious debate/opinion/comments as to whether or not a 10 year old really needs a Facebook account, I would like to make at least one request to parents/guardians/grandparents/babysitters/etc. Please monitor these accounts and at the very least YOU set and control the privacy settings of your kids account and “Wall”. Yes, you can go back and block someone who is saying inappropriate things to your kids or exposing them to inappropriate subjects or ideas, but that equates to shutting the gate after the horse gets out of the corral. Yes it can be a draining task but it may protect them in the long run. If you do allow them to have an account restrict their “friends” list to only people that you know are truly “friends”.

1. SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY/FRAUD: On Mon 25 Mar 2013 Officer Matt Wolf spoke to an 82 year old Township woman who reported that she has been receiving harassing phone calls from people in Jamaica telling her that she has won a lottery. Because of her age and the fact that she lives alone these types of calls are very disturbing to a resident like this. As a result of some indentations in the newly fallen snow coupled with these phone calls, this resident thought someone was walking around her home now. I would like to remind everyone that although there isn’t much we can do to stop these low-lifes from calling and trying to scam & scare our elderly citizens, we can watch out for them. If you have a resident like this on your block take the time to get to know them and watch out for them. Be someone they can call if they have a minor problem or aren’t sure about a mailing or phone call they receive. Be someone who watches out for them. Be a good neighbor.

As warmer weather gets here (no really, it will eventually get here) watch for repair scams and suspicious people talking to your elderly neighbors. The elderly are popular targets for roofing and driveway scams. There are also groups that work in pairs so one person can keep the elderly resident busy out in the front of the house with questions while the second enters the home through a back door and commits a quick Theft. Watch for people being dropped off in the neighborhood and then going to talk to a neighbor, especially an elderly neighbor.

The ensuing investigation was conducted by the Manor Township Police Department, The Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office, and the Lancaster County Coroner’s Office. An autopsy was conducted and the Coroner’s Office has ruled the death was the result of gunshot wound, and the manner is listed as “homicide”. As a result of the investigation which has been reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office, it was determined that Chris Leonards was intoxicated and began to physically assault James Leonards inside the home. Chris Leonards was 6’1”/200 lbs. James Leonards is 5’4”/200 lbs. Chris placed James in a choke hold and was choking James. At some point James was able to break free and retreated to the end of a hallway. Fearing for his life, James picked up a nearby handgun. Chris continued the assault and charged down the hallway at James. Fearing for his life, James fired and struck Chris. Chris died at the scene. An eyewitness to the assault and subsequent shooting corroborated James’s account of the events. The case is being handled as a justifiable homicide/self-defense, and no charges will be brought. The investigation has been closed at this time.

1. FRAUD-On Fri 15 Mar 2013 a Township woman who conducts a business on the internet reported to Officer Mark Burkholder that someone attempted to scam her. A person, who claimed to be disabled and deaf (of course) contacted her via email about purchasing some of the items she sells. The woman eventually received a check which was for more than the cost of the products (of course). The scammer instructed the woman to send back the overpayment through Western Union (of course). The woman was smart enough to realize that this was a scam and reported it to the police. Police remind citizens that if you sell things over the internet there are a few clues to watch for. First of all, a large portion of those sending out these scams do not have a good grasp on the English language. You will see a fair amount of missing letters at the end of words, missing words, and poor grammar (hope I haven’t made too many mistakes in this release), almost the extent where you can hear the foreign accent if you read it fast. There will also usually be a reason or excuse as to why you can’t reach this person directly. And finally the big flashing neon red alert do not fall for this beacon in the night sign……….a check for more than the purchase price.
