Man Displays Gun in Dispute Over Parking Space
A report from this weekend's shopping frenzy at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets
The following was sent in by Limerick Township Police Chief Bill Albany:
Limerick Township Police responded to the Philadelphia Premium Outlet Mall Saturday afternoon after receiving reports that a man displayed a handgun during a dispute over a parking space. Witnesses told police that a silver Nissan pulled in front of an SUV to take the parking space the SUV was pulling into. The female operator of the SUV made a comment to the male operator of the Nissan and the male lifted his jacket to display a handgun tucked in his waistband. The male stated something to the effect of "You don't want this, don't act stupid."
The female left the area and called police.
Police were able to locate the male inside the mall and he was found to be carrying a loaded 380 caliber semi-automatic handgun. The subject - identified as Waymon Darnell Jones, age 24, of the 300 block of Morgan Drive in Limerick - was arrested and charged with terroristic threats.
Jones had a permit to carry the firearm and this was seized by police pending its return to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Dept. He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Hummel and released on $10,000 unsecured bail.
