WEST WHITELANDTOWNSHIP, PA— Police were called to the scene of the Exton Walmart Wednesday evening after a man entered the store fully nude, according to police reports.
Police say Verdon Lamont Taylor, 32, of Downingtown, parked his vehicle outside the store and then stripped off all his clothing before he entered the store and approached the customer service desk. Taylor allegedly stole a pair of socks and put them on before walking deeper into the store, police said.
YOU’D ASSUME that Gail Newman is using hyperbole when she calls the Philadelphia Gas Works a “fascist” regime run by “devious gangsters” relying on “Mafia-like” tactics to shake her down for $15,000 worth of natural gas she never used.
Bit over the top, right? Turns out, Newman’s not the only one who feels that way.
“They know they can extort the money . . . ” she said. “I’m just a middle-class person trying to make a buck, and they’re taking their boot and squashing us. I’m so pissed!”
HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police says the closure of a pair of dispatch centers will add 100 troopers to patrol but some barracks may have to be closed in the future while the force deals with increased responsibilities.
Commissioner Frank Noonan told a state Senate appropriations panel Thursday that the force will still be 10 percent below its full complement even after a new cadet class graduates this summer.
