Burglary Suspect Rams Lower Salford Police Car
Written by Kelly Chandler, Staff Writer
2013-07-17

         Two Lower Salford police officers were hurt after they interrupted a burglary in progress at the Montgomery County Sports Performance Center, officials said Sunday.

        According to police, around 3:30 a.m. Saturday, authorities found a man, later identified as Isaiah Crawley, 23, of Willingboro, N.J., taking unspecified items out of the gym. 

The facility is located at 110 Christopher Lane.  CAL Sports Academy and a variety of gymnastics, dance, martial arts and other teams utilize the gym. 

Police said Crawley saw authorities but failed to comply with an officer’s verbal commands.  A foot pursuit reportedly ensued, and he got back to his vehicle and fled the scene.

Crawley rammed a marked police vehicle, authorities said, and was pursued onto Main Street and then the PA Turnpike before the pursuit ended in the area of the Fort Washington Interchange (Route 276).  Police did not say how or why the pursuit ended.

        Police said two officers were injured as a result of the incident.  Both were treated and released from a local hospital.  It was not clear how the officers sustained the injuries.

        Crawley was charged with burglary, aggravated assault, fleeing and eluding, theft and related offenses.  He was arraigned by District Judge Albert Augustine and bail was set at $500,000 straight cash.  A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 26 at 10:30 a.m. in Skippack District Court.
