Police A rrest l ive For Around
Five persons, including; two women, were arrested last night on charges of loitering in the Levittown Shopping Center.
The arrests were made in line with a new “get tough” policy on loiterers called for by Mayor Edward Hunt during Monday night’s Tullytown Borough Council session.
Two juveniles were among those hauled before Justice of the Peace James V. Parto shortly after their arrest at 8 p.m.
Hie women, Miss Antionette Lowe, 20, of ISIG Murray St., Philadelphia, and Miss Karen Koyne,
20, of 571 Bath St., Bristol, were both committed to the Bucks County Prison when they were unable to post bail.
A third adult, Ronald Walker, 18, of 1956 Maple Ave., Croydon, was fined a total of $34 and released. The juveniles, one from West Bristol and the other from Trenton, were released in tho custody of their parents after paying fines of $21 each.
Police Chief John Walterick and Patrolman George F'ord made the arrests.
“We won’t stand for any more large groups ‘just hanging around’ the shopping center or any other area.” Chief Walterick said. “They get one warning to disperse and then it’s off to the JP.”
I of the commission, said the ap plications were not properly processed and approved.
To Be Reviewed Final plans for the shopping center are to be reviewed by the commission tonight.
