Phoenixville Woman Arrested During Car Stop

The woman's troubles began when the officer asked for her license and registration.


A 24-year-old Phoenixville woman is facing charges of receiving stolen property following a traffic stop by East Pikeland Police.

East Pikeland police charged the woman from Third Avenue in Phoenixville "with receiving stolen property after she was stopped for being in possession of a stolen Pennsylvania registration."

According to East Pikeland police, she was processed and released pending a hearing at a later date.

Where's Third Avenue Avenue?

No change here at the Patch. I see we're still going to get pointless news that has no useful information.
Lynn B. May 14, 2013 at 01:11 PM
no name? Don't believe the story! C'mon Patch. If you're going to be our police reporter than we want the whole story. This has been going on too long.

Quite frankly, until convicted, it's no ones business who did what. Innocent until proven guilty!

terrific news article Bob. you keep that up and you could win a Pulitzer.
Rachel Wilson May 14, 2013 at 01:36 PM
They can't leave a name for misdemeanor charges! Why can't you people get that already? Stop being so nosy, it's just a blotter, you act like the woman is a pedophile or murderer and u need to know her name to keep yourself safe! Get over it. And to the people who bash the writing, just stop reading it if it bothers you so much.

If you are going to be stupid enough to use a stolen Pennsylvania Registration then your name should be printed in the paper. I think these articles are pointless without names.
Bob Byrne (Editor) May 14, 2013 at 02:09 PM
I don't think I would submit a police blotter story to the Pulitzer committee, but thanks!
Bob Byrne (Editor) May 14, 2013 at 02:09 PM
Yep, you got me. A typo plain and simple. Enjoy your day.
Bob Byrne (Editor) May 14, 2013 at 02:20 PM
Marcthepig Great name! Perhaps I could come and do a story about a pig that can opine and type-now THAT would also be useless information, but it sure would be interesting. "Pointless "is a matter of opinion. Is this the biggest story we're going to report on today? Nope, but tax dollars went into the police stopping this suspect and then processing her. You'll be paying the bill for the prosecutors, the court judge, the court clerks and the constables who staff the district court. If this suspect had hit and hurt or killed someone you'd probably question "why Patch didn't cover this when we knew about it." The thing about news is that it happens and not everyone is going to be satisfied with every story. Great things are happening here in Phoenixville and we cover those too. You're still going to get a broad spectrum of news and sometimes that includes police stories. Thanks for weighing in!

Hi Lynn: You raise a question that a lot of people I'm sure are wondering about. Patch's editorial policy is that except in rare cases we do not report the names of suspect or defendants in misdemeanor cases. You have the whole story as we have it at the moment, except for the defendant's name.
Bob Byrne (Editor) May 14, 2013 at 02:26 PM
Jo, thanks for your comment. I have brought it to the attention of Patch's editorial management.
Ed Roper May 14, 2013 at 02:42 PM
Bob, don't feed the trolls. These same people complained about The Phoenix, even when it was a free newspaper. You get what you pay for, and for the money, this site is a bargain. If somebody wants "real" news coverage, then they can put their money where there mouth is and support a "real" news organization, or thanks to the democratization of the internet they can start their own thing and create a blog. Thats what I did.

"Innocent until proven guilty" is only for the courtroom. If you are not the judge or the jury at the person's trial, you can make any assessment you want. BTW, is there any way to get Patch to not send an email every time you post a comment? Very annoying.
harry finster May 14, 2013 at 05:05 PM
Bob, don't you know that all articles are pointless until you post a story with the winning Lotto numbers in advance of them coming out. Now get to work.
John May 14, 2013 at 07:05 PM
Who cares about the name? So you can trash someone who may later be found innocent? Are you kidding me? If it was your relative, would you want their name dragged through the paper before the whole truth comes out? Wake up losers, the patch is doing a fine job based on the policies they must enforce....
CMURDA May 14, 2013 at 07:51 PM
Mr. Bryne u said that it is Phoenixville Patches policy is not to state the names of suspects in misdemeanor cases except in rare cases. I think that Phoenixville Patch publishes the names of people that they want to. I was accused of a misdemeanor offense last year and found not guilty because your paper decided to publish my name I still hear about it today. INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY???????
Bob Byrne (Editor) May 14, 2013 at 09:41 PM
GREAT question. Yes, there is. under the comment box you should see a checkbox that reads "Send me email updates for this article". It is automatically checked and if you UN-check it before hitting submit you won't get an email for every comment. Unfortunately it's too late for this article because you need to do it every time you add a comment. It's something Patch is taking a look at and I'm glad you asked.
Bob Byrne (Editor) May 14, 2013 at 09:58 PM
Hi Cmurda, Patch Editorial management (the editorial policy makers that I answer to) changed the policy since last year. If you can send us court documents that clearly document the outcome of your case (please include a docket number, the name of the case, the date the case was resolved, the court and the judge in the case) Patch will review the case and if the outcome is verified we will update the story. Please send an email with that information to "phoenixville@patch.com" Please note that names of suspects and defendants in court filings are a matter of public record and while Patch can review stories that we post, we cannot expunge names from any official public records or other publications.
Ed Roper May 14, 2013 at 11:38 PM
So clear your name now. Who are you, what were you accused of, and what was the outcome of the case.
Obama Remorse May 15, 2013 at 01:37 AM
I don't get that checkbox.
harry finster May 15, 2013 at 02:47 AM
there are so many small time criminals in phoenixville you should just give them numbers until their cases are resolved then give names ,lets see if i get deleted

Just for anyone who is interesfed....
harry finster May 16, 2013 at 01:15 AM
you can read about normal people in the fairfax patch ,you will notice dimitri storm was an outsider driving through rather than a local as in your case
jo May 16, 2013 at 02:48 PM
wow amber rain way to throw your friend or ex-friend under the bus! But thanks for the info!
Ed Roper May 16, 2013 at 02:49 PM
That comment was bad, and you should feel bad.
Here and Now May 16, 2013 at 09:00 PM
Just delete yourself Fafa Bretz. You seem like a lonely desperate troll.
Here and Now May 16, 2013 at 09:02 PM
Lonely unemployed troll. Lives in mom's basement. Go upstairs and eat another Hotpocket.
