Local kids robbed of candy at gunpoint

Quote:Police allege the three kids were returning from trick-or-treating shortly before 10:30 p.m. when they were robbed at gunpoint. The incident occurred on Dolor Drive, according to Mayor Rita Ledger.
In addition to “three full bags of candy,” the suspect stole a “Notre Dame” book bag and an iPod. The items were valued at a total of $135, police said. No other information was provided.
Morrisville police came under fire in August and September after they failed to immediately report two alleged child abduction attempts until days after they occurred. The lack of communication led to the creation of a town watch group that attracted 200 people to its first meeting last month.
After the second abduction attempt, Ledger, who did not run for re-election, also announced plans to meet with police and council to work out a strategy for publicizing future public safety incidents.
But council President Nancy Sherlock says she didn’t know about the alleged gunpoint robbery until a newspaper reporter told her. She complained that Ledger has not shared any police reports with council in months.
“I’m not happy about this if the mayor knew about this and didn’t tell us,” she said. “It’s a lack of communication or care.”

This is just a couple towns over from us. I wasn't aware about the late reporting of stuff, but that's not good. Anyhow....I guess kids should be trick or treating with armed parents from now on, in the Philly 'burbs.

Disgusting. It's terrible that people don't value life (pointing a gun) any more than a couple bags of candy and a used iPod. Sigh.

Of course, earlier in the article, it does say that trick or treating should have been over at 8pm, so not sure if this was partying teenagers or what. Guess there could be more to the story.
