Troopers Investigate Unrelated Ammunition Incidents

SKIPPACK PA – Two separate and unrelated incidents involving ammunition in Upper Frederick and Upper Hanover townships, respectively, were reported to Pennsylvania State Police at the Troop K Barracks in Skippack, according to public information releases distributed Wednesday (June 28, 2021).

In Upper Frederick

Troopers said they were called July 18 (Sunday) at 6:21 p.m. to a Faust Road address by a 48-year-old woman for a report of “a discharged bullet sitting in a windowsill.” Troopers determined the bullet “had torn a small hole into a screen” before hitting the sill, and caused “a small indent in the vinyl frame.”

There was no mention about the caliber of the bullet, the gun it might have been used in, how it ended up in the windowsill, or when it might have arrived there.

In Upper Hanover

Troopers responded July 7 (Wednesday) at 1:05 p.m. regarding the alleged theft of a box of ammunition, reported by a 53-year-old Pennsburg man, from a property on St. Pauls Church Road. The white box of 500-count Winchester 9mm ammunition was valued at $75. The state police investigation is continuing, the release stated.
