SANATOGA PA – A 22-year-old Pottstown man who Lower Pottsgrove police allege “was high on drugs” was arrested Thursday (Jan. 2, 2014) at about 3 p.m. at professional offices on the township’s southeast side.
Robert P. Porter, of the 800 block of North Charlotte Street, was arrested on a charge of public drunkenness. Ofc. David Slothower said the arrest followed the police response to a call from The Malvern Institute, 1566 Medical Dr., where Porter was found.
The drug involved was not specified in the police report.
The institute “provides a full continuum of care for those who suffer from the disease of addiction,” according to its website. It programs reportedly include inpatient detoxification, inpatient rehabilitation, partial hospitalization, and intensive and general outpatient services.
