POTTSTOWN PA – Maybe this wasn’t the best way to make an exit.
A suspect who faced a variety of charges lodged by Lower Pottsgrove police left his arraignment last week at the Sanatoga courtroom of District Justice Edward Kropp Sr., 2093 E. High St., by allegedly kicking and damaging its exterior doors, an officer reported. Now charges are pending against the suspect for that action, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday (Sept. 20) at 10 a.m. on the earlier complaints.
Amie L. Royer, whose last known address was known to be within the township, according to Ofc. Daniel Kienle, was arrested Sept. 10 (Monday) at about 2:55 p.m. after police arrived at 1223 N. Keim St., Apt. 1, in response to a neighbor disturbance call.
During the course of his investigation, Kienle said, Royer was determined to have been the cause of the alleged disturbance, and also was reported to have provided police with a false name. Additionally, the police report noted, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were alleged to have been found in Royer’s possession.
Royer was charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, false identification to law enforcement, and disorderly conduct; taken into custody, and eventually transported to Kropp’s courtroom.
That’s where he encountered the door.
New charges are pending against Royer, Kienle said, for institutional vandalism and criminal mischief.
