On Sunday March 11, 2018, at 7:22 a.m., Upper Dublin Police were dispatched to a report of a burglary in the 500 block of Madison Avenue in the Fort Washington section of Upper Dublin Township. A heavy-set male suspect entered an unlocked motor vehicle in the driveway, located and used a remote control to open the garage door and then went inside the garage. The suspect was confronted by the homeowner and fled from the garage. During his flight, the suspect discharged one round from a handgun. No one was struck by the bullet. The suspect fled the neighborhood in what is believed to be a late 2000’s Ford Expedition, possibly black over tan in color.
Any residents of Upper Dublin Township who may have had their vehicle entered overnight are encouraged to call the Upper Dublin Police Department. Any residents who have video surveillance systems attached to the exterior of their home that may have captured video evidence are also encouraged to call 911. The investigation of this case is ongoing.
