At the Millersville Borough council meeting on September 26, 2017, two officers and a community resident received commendations from Mayor Moriarty for their recent actions. In early August, Officer Hammer was on routine patrol and encountered a well-involved house on fire on Blue Ridge Drive. Upon exiting his patrol vehicle he was given information that the homeowner was still inside attempting to control the fire. Hammer, along with neighbor Rusty McCollum, entered the structure and convinced the gentleman to exit to a place of safety. Moments later heavy smoke and fire consumed the entire home. The homeowner avoided serious injury. In a separate incident, Officer Rudisill was on nighttime patrol on West Frederick Street and heard a smoke alarm sounding. Smoke was located coming from the window of a second floor apartment. As Rudisill was preparing to force entry through a locked door, the lone occupant finally awoke. The origin was found to be unattended cooking. Reminder ... October is fire prevention month. Be safe!

This cat was found on Pickwick Place in Millersville Borough this morning. She has no tags or collar. She appears to be a pet and not a feral cat as she is not afraid of people. She is resting comfortably in her temporary home. Please call 872-4657 to claim.

Press Release Millersville Borough Police Department has made an arrest following a week and a half long investigation into a strong armed robbery of a 21 year old male. On 08/05/17 the victim came to the Millersville Borough police station to report that he had been robbed while attending a party in a Millersville University off-campus apartment complex. The victim reported that a male that he did not know, approached him in the living room of the apartment at approximately 2:40am and asked for a ride. When the victim refused to give the suspect a ride, the suspect became irate, pulled a handgun from his waistband and struck him in the back of the head with the handgun. The suspect then demanded that the victim give him his stuff and kicked the victim in the face. The suspect took the victim’s wallet, watch, gold necklace and vehicle keys and fled out the front door of the apartment. There were approximately 8-10 eyewitnesses in the living room at the time the robbery took place. Police, through the course of following up with the victim and witnesses and a known nickname, “Trizzy”, of the suspect were able to positively identify the suspect as Treyon Andre Thomas(19yoa) of Lancaster PA. An arrest warrant was obtained for Thomas on 08/10/17 and Millersville Borough Police worked with Lancaster City Police and Manheim Township Police in attempts to locate Thomas. On 08/16/17 Millersville Borough Police were notified by NYPD that they had Thomas in custody in New York City. NYPD advised that at the time of his arrest he was found to be in possession of a firearm and a controlled substance so he faces additional charges in New York. Thomas is facing charges of Robbery, Aggravated Assault and theft for the incident in Millersville. Investigators are also looking into complaints of indecent contact with females that were in attendance of the party. Thomas additionally has a bench warrant through the Lancaster County Sherriff’s Office for a parole violation stemming from 2016 charges in Manheim Township of Simple Assault and Terroristic Threats involving a gun. Police have not yet been able to identify all of the witnesses that were present at the party and are asking that they come forward to provide additional information that would be helpful.

Tatara, Officer Anderson and Officer Rios (Millersville University PD). A HUGE thanks to Millersville police and my wonderful husband for all there assistance this morning at 2:30. I was headed to Turkey Hill to grab some things we NEEDED and my pos car broke down. My car had complete loss of power. Engine light on, battery light on, gas light on, dash lights shut off and the car left me sitting at 2 cousins. Triple A would have taken 40min to get there. Took 35min to answer my call. Sooo Millersville police came after I called them first of course so I wouldn't get hit and arrived 6 min after I called. They sat behind my car with there lights on to make sure we didn't get hit. Then the officer called 3 other officers to help push the car up to Scotts Tune up. My husband behind the wheel steering while car was in neutral and 3 officers pushing the back of the car in there uniforms in hot humid weather the car made it to Scotts. Not only did they save me from a 40min wait for Triple A, they drove me and my kids home. My husband walked to Turkey Hill to get what we needed and was going to walk home. The officer dropped me n the kids off and went back to pick up my husband to bring him home. I appreciate everything they have done tonight to help me and my family. I have much respect for these officers and all other officers, EMS, fire fighters, nurses and everyone else out there to help keep loved ones safe while there missing there loved ones day in and day out.
