Plymouth Township police officers receive citation for response to New Year’s Day shooting and car theft

Members of the Plymouth Township Police Department’s “A” Squad recently received a unit citation for actions taken by officers in response to an early morning incident on New Year’s Day.

Plymouth Township Police Dispatcher Andrew Thomas, who is also a volunteer Plymouth Fire Company firefighter, notified officers of the robbery of a motor vehicle, with a gunshot victim, that just occurred in East Norriton Township. Officers responded by positioning themselves on the border of the two townships where they were able to intercept the fleeing armed assailant. No one was injured in the apprehension.
