Warrant Issued for Pottstown Woman in Alleged Theft

LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – An 18-year-old Pottstown woman is being sought for arrest under a warrant held by the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department, which alleges she took a cell phone that does not belong to her, according to the department CrimeWatch website.

Court records indicate Amiyyah Cousins has been charged with theft by unlawful taking, and receiving stolen property. The warrant was issued by Magisterial District Justice Edward C. Kropp Sr., police said Monday (Nov. 2, 2020).

Police reported they were dispatched in late October to the Rolling Hills apartment complex on Buchert Road for a report of a theft. The victim told officers “there had been a group of females fighting in the area” and, “while attempting to break up the fight,” the victim apparently dropped her cell phone. She was unaware of the loss at the time, they added. But a short time later, they said, the victim claimed she saw Cousins pick up the phone and then leave the area in a white vehicle.

Officers reportedly made several attempts to contact Cousins. They apparently connected and talked, asking Cousins to return the cell phone. She allegedly refused, and then later refused to answer any further calls, police claimed.

Anyone who knows of Cousins’ whereabouts is asked to call the department at (610) 326-1508, or to offer information on the website’s “Submit A Tip” page, here.
