Burglary Arrest

At 11:41 p.m. January 3, 2018, officers responded to a vehicle crash at the intersection of North President Avenue and Marietta Avenue in Lancaster Township. Arriving officers found that westbound Honda on Marietta Avenue had failed to stop for the red light and collided with a northbound Toyota on North President Avenue, resulting in severe damage to both vehicles. The driver of the Toyota was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening.

The Honda was found a short distance away on Marietta Avenue, but the driver was observed fleeing on foot. Officers searched the area but could not immediately locate the male. It was later determined that the vehicle had been stolen from an auto dealership in Lancaster City.

At 2:16 a.m. January 4, 2017, a resident of the 500 Block of North President Avenue called 911 to report that somebody was trying to break into their residence. Officers surrounded the residence and found that forced entry had been made by breaking a window. With the assistance of Manheim Township’s K-9 unit, the home was searched and a male was found hiding in an upstairs bedroom closet. He was taken into custody, and officers were able to determine that he had been the driver of the Honda from the crash. Marijuana was found in his possession. The male was identified as: Michael E. Green M/25, 2000 Block Temple Avenue, Lancaster PA

Green was charged with Burglary, Loitering and Prowling, Possession of Marijuana, Accidents Involving Damage to Attended Vehicle, No Insurance, and Traffic Control Signals (Red Light Violation). He was turned over to Central Booking and committed to Lancaster County Prison after being unable to post $25,000 bail.
