OUT & ABOUT: MAY 2015

NOTICE: Since mid-March Laurel Mountain Borough has been challenged with atypical events. Rumors are flying and imaginations are activated.

What is known is that there have been 3 break-ins: one on Maple Rd. (Phil Rose), one on Laurel Rd., and one on Locust Rd.

  • Burglary, someone forced entry through a window at a Locust Street residence and tried to light a fire inside. —Tribune Review, Blotter, 6/5/2015, pp B2

Might I personally encourage each of you to be proactive in keeping our Borough safe by:

  • Keeping your ears and eyes open to anything unusual, especially around part-time housing…if you suspect someone contact the mayor or a council member
  • Contacting any owner of a part-time residence that you know, to inform them about what is happening in the Borough. They probably don’t know, so cannot take action to protect their property.

May, all month: Many thanks to those who worked hard to clean up the Laurel Mountain Park pool and shelter house. Laurel Mountain Park is sponsoring a pool party June 6. Watch your email for further information.

OUT & ABOUT: APRIL 2015

April 24: Phil Rose and Jane, his long-time girl friend, were married in Phil’s hospital room at the hospital in Johnstown.

 April 28: The home of Phil Rose was broken into. Windows were broken and antiques were destroyed. The five perpetrators were between 11 and 14 years old; three live in Laurel Mountain Borough.

Three of the perpetrators were caught “in the act” by a Borough resident, who called the police. The crime on Maple Rd. was reported on live television and in the newspapers.
