Pair Accused of Holding Women and Children at Gunpoint

Two men entered a Lower Moreland home with a gun looking for a safe in May of 2012; police are now charging two men with that crime.

The Lower Moreland Police Department has arrested two men in connection to an armed home invasion on the 1400 block of Heaton Hill Lane.

According to a press release issued by LMPD Chief of Police Peter Hasson, Michael Lysaunders and James Christopher Myers have been identified as the two men who held several female adults and children at gunpoint in May of 2012.

A third unidentified man, who is believed to have driven the two men to the robbery, is still at large.

The two men approached the Huntingdon Valley home and demanded to know where the safe was, police said. They fled the scene with only a computer once the homeowner told the men there was no safe in the house, police said. Myers is a previous employee of the homeowner’s business, according to the release.
