Crime, other issues at 2nd PDAC meeting

Capt. Marc Metellus and community relations officer Mark Mroz touched on several topics at last week’s 2nd Police District Advisory Council meeting.

They said arrest warrants have been issued for two people believed to be involved in last month’s triple murder on the 5900 block of Palmetto St. in Lawncrest. The victims were 14, 17 and 18 years old.

No progress has been made in finding the three suspects or the 48-year-old man abducted on March 31 on the 900 block of E. Godfrey Ave. in Summerdale.

Inspector Frank Bachmayer will hold a town hall on Wednesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. at Abraham Lincoln High School.

National Night Out will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 1, outside Fox Chase Elementary School.

As summer approaches, there are concerns that the swimming pool at Max Myers Recreation Center will not open or will open late due to maintenance issues that, some say, have been ignored by the city.

The district will evaluate applications for another summer favorite, block parties. Streets that have a history of crime will have their applications rejected.

State Rep. Jared Solomon has moved his office to 6434 Castor Ave.

City Councilman Brian O’Neill will hold three upcoming events, all on Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. at his district offices. An e-cycling event will take place on May 20 at 7522 Castor Ave. A shredding event is set for June 3 at 432 Rhawn St., behind American Heritage Credit Union. A recycling bucket giveaway is scheduled for June 10 at FOP Lodge 5, 11630 Caroline Road. Call 215-686-3422.

The 2nd PDAC will meet on Tuesday, June 13, at 6 p.m. at the Philadelphia Protestant Home. The group will take off in July and August and meet again on Sept. 12. ••
