Stolen Car Located at Royersford Giant

A male suspect was arrested by Limerick Township police.

Police converged on the Giant grocery store on Township Line Road in Royersford late Sunday night after a Royersford police officer located a stolen car in the parking lot. 

Limerick Township police sergeant Paul Marchese told Patch that the incident had actually begun in Lower Pottsgrove earlier in the evening. 

A Lower Pottsgrove officer ran the Georgia plates on the silver Camaro and discovered it was reported stolen. Lower Pottsgrove police attempted to stop the driver, but he fled, and they began searching for the car with the assistance of other local departments. 

A Royersford officer then spotted the car in the Giant parking lot and radioed other officers.

The driver was arrested and transported to Pottstown to be held pending a hearing on Monday.

A reporter observed a suspect being handcuffed on Township Line Road near the Giant, and Marchese said that the suspect was "acting up in the car, trying to kick the windows, so they shackled him."

Four other people in an SUV were interviewed by police because they were seen talking to the suspect. They were released after police were able to determine that they were not involved with the suspect in any way.

Patch will have more on this story after we are able to follow up with the Limerick Township Police Department.
