Upper Darby Teens Wanted for Robberies; Remains Found in Tioga-Nicetown; Stop-n-Go Bill Passes House

Upper Darby police are searching for two teenage girls wanted for a series of armed robberies in Delaware County. On June 19th around 9:25 p.m., a cab driver with Get-A-Cab was dispatched to pick up a girl on the 100 block of Glendale Road. While one girl distracted the driver, the other went around to the driver side window and demanded money at gunpoint. They made off with $100. Two hours later, a cab driver with County Cab went to pick up a girl on the 200 block of Copley Road. He was also robbed at gunpoint of $80. The same phone was used to call both cabs. On June 23rd at 10 a.m., 52-year-old Marta Chacon and 86-year-old Maria Cardenas, who were visiting relatives from Ecuador, were approached by two girls outside a house on the unit block of Kent Road. The girls demanded the women's handbags at gunpoint, which they did not give up easily. The women were hit and dropped their bags. One contained $200 and a cellphone. The other had $700 cash. The teens were seen coming and going in a newer, dark grey sedan, possibly a hyundai.

Human remains were discovered this afternoon by contractors doing demolition work at a construction site in the city's Tioga-Nicetown neighborhood. Workers were digging at the site on the 1700 block of W. Atlantic Street when they discovered the partial remains around 3:20 p.m. Police detectives and the medical examiner were called in. A set of bones and a human jaw were found at the lot. The medical examiner estimates that the body was buried for at least two years. Further examination is needed to determine any cause of death. Neighbors say there used to be a laundromat there, but it was torn down to make way for new construction.

The Pennsylvania House has approved legislation that would give municipalities greater leverage in dealing with so called "stop-and-go" establishments that sell beer and liquor, many of which skirt the laws. Most liquor licenses require a store to regularly serve food and have seating for 30 people. These places, which can be part of a small convenience store, gas station, or deli, often do not have those accommodations. The bill today would allow the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board along with local municipalities to declare a zip code a "saturated nuisance market area." Violations in those areas would result in harsher penalties. Philadelphia House Democrat Jordan Harris, a sponsor of the bill, notes that the PLCB would now be able to shut down or revoke a liquor license if a facility does not have a city heath department food facility license. "In order to have a health license, you have to have bathrooms, you have to have washing stations, you have to have all of these things," he said. "If Philadelphia pulls your health license, the LCB can stop that person from selling alcohol." The PA Senate will now consider the bill.
