Gun Pulled on Resident During Home Invasion

Two males posing as deliverymen knocked on someone's door, entered the home and pulled out a gun and asked for a safe.

On Saturday, May 19, at approximately 1 p.m., the Lower Moreland Police Department was called to a resident's home on the 1400 block of Heaton Hill Road in LM Township.

A homeowner reported two black males knocked on the front door of the resident's house posing as deliverymen. When the homeowner opened the door the males entered the home. One of the males possessed a large handgun and pointed it at the homeowner.

The males inquired about a safe in the home. When the males discovered there was not a safe in the home, they ran from the residence on Heaton Hill Road toward Heaton Road.

There were no injuries as a result of the confrontation. The police department is investigating and anyone with information is asked to contact (215) 947-3132.

May 16 – Burglary – Forced Entry

  • 3800 block of Bradford Rd.

Mikhail Tuchinsky, 58, of Huntingdon Valley, called LMPD to report that his rear door handle to his house was broken. He entered his house and found his kitchen, dining room, living room and two bedrooms had light ransacking.

Two landscapers who had been working outside the home all day reported to Mikhail that they saw a black male was on the property earlier posing as a pool maintenance worker. He was described as a light-skin male, tall, heavyset, short hair with large teeth. After being told the owners were not home, the male proceeded to the rear yard and touched a statue that was next to the in-ground pool. He tiled the small fish statue to the side and looked underneath it. The male then talked on his cell phone and walked back and forth four times between the side driveway and the rear yard. The landscapers stated the male was driving a white Chevrolet sedan.

The homeowners claim that several pieces of jewelry were taken from the bedroom dresser and a ring was taken from a kitchen shelf.
