The Royersford Police Department responded to 77 incidents from 8/28/2012 to 9/4/2012.

Royersford police received two complaints on September 1 and 2 regarding 26-year-old Autumn Evanik of Norristown. On September 1, Patrolman Kyle Heffernan reported that the complainant, an ex-boyfriend, alleged that Evanik was threatening him via text and voicemail messages.

Police reported that they listened to the voicemail messages and that Evanik allegedly made threatening and racially charged statements. Charges for harrassment and racial intimidation are pending, according to police.

On September 2, the same complainant arrived at the Royersford police station with Evanik on speakerphone and spoke to Officer Tom Godin. According to the report, Godin heard Evanik making threats over the speakerphone. Additional charges of harrassment, ethnic intimidation, and terroristic threats are pending following this second incident.

Also on September 1, officers responded to 3rd and Green Streets after a report of unidentified males trying to break in to several vehicles. Police reported that someone walking to their home from Humane Fire Company saw several males trying doors on cars. Officers searched the area and could not find anyone, but did stop and question several males that fit the description.

On September 2, Patrolman Joseph Oberholtzer responded to a report fo a male trespassing at 325 Main St, Royersford. Neighbors called around 9:05pm and reported seeing a male standing outside, looking into a window.

The male fled the scene when police arrived and was stopped in the 300 block of Summer Street. He was identified as Joshua Griffin, 37, of Spring City.

Griffin was arrested, and a records search revealed he was on probation, so he was transported to Montgomery County Correctional Facility. He was charged with trespassing, prowling at night and loitering. 

On September 4, police responded to a report of a recently discovered break-in on the 300 block of Green Street. The homeowner saw that the front door was open and a light on when he arrived home. The house was searched and it was discovered that cash was missing from the home. Police are still investigating and the incident has been turned over to detectives.

Is it politically incorrect to mention the race and/or age of the "unidentified males" breaking into cars on 3rd and Green? How is that supposed to help us keep an eye out for people glancing into cars on a street they don't live? Also, where can I find the detail summary of the 77 incidents the Rofo police logged in the last few weeks?

You left out the hit and run that occurred on the 500 block of Main Street in Royersford. One car was totaled and the 2nd car was damaged. Hit and Run's on Main Street are an ongoing issue. This is the 2nd one at this location in the past year, and the 10th since I've been living here. We are looking for a 2012 Silver Jeep Sahara with front passenger side damage. Please notify Royersford Police if you have any information. And to the hit and run driver, I will keep looking for you until I find you. All factory Jeep Parts departments has been notified to keep an eye out for you, they will receive a $100 reward for turning you in, as well as anyone else who contacts the Rofo police with your identity.
