The Shillington Police Department would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Family of Ofc. Ray Waligorski. We also will be keeping the entire Wyomissing Police Department and Community in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

May you Rest In Peace. We have the watch.

It is with profound sadness and regret that the Wyomissing Police Department announces the passing of Officer Raymond A. Waligorski after a yearlong illness. He served the Wyomissing community with honor and distinction since 1988. Officer Waligorski, who forged a legacy of service and provides a message in his own words to all from his baseball style Cop Card, which is “always strive to do your very best and never be afraid to stand up for your beliefs”. Well done good and faithful servant, rest in peace, Officer Raymond A. Waligorski!

The Police Department regretfully announces the passing of K9 Jynx (Retired BCSO). K9 Jynx was the loyal and loving partner to Deputy Kyle Pagerly (BCSO) who was tragically taken from us serving a high risk warrant in 2011.

May you Rest In Peace, Jynx.

PS- Don’t hesitate to call for an Uber or another ride sharing service if you are going to indulge in some adult alcoholic beverages. It will be a lot less expensive then getting a ride from us.

The post was investigated by the Spring Twp. Police Department. The only relation to the Borough was he was a past resident of Shillington, and he has not updated his residence location on Facebook.

If there are further questions etc. please contact the Spring Twp. Police Department.

Shillington police received hundreds of calls and emails this week after a Spring Township man said on Facebook that he blew up a kitten with an M-80 firecracker for the fun of it. Turns out, it was a hoax.

07/10/2019

Final update from our Police Department- The person was found to reside in the jurisdiction of Spring Township. As we have stated in our previous posts we were not investigating anything due to the person not residing in the Borough. This is not a matter of “we don’t care” or “we don’t want to.” It is a matter of jurisdiction in which we do not have authority. Again, all information we received was received by Spring Twp. PD. This was either passed along by us, people like you, our databases etc.

If there are any further questions, concerns, comments you will have to contact the Spring Twp. PD.

Thank you!

Update to our update: This Police Dept. has done what they can at this point. All information has been passed along to the proper jurisdiction where they reside. We, along with numerous other agencies have received the information from Facebook, emails, phone calls, and our own databases to aid in investigating if this is a founded act. It still has to be determined if the act occurred and where it occurred. Just an act of admission still warrants an investigation to see if the admission is true/credible. Even with the post of what the person typed isn’t enough to make an arrest until fully investigated by the proper Police Department in which has jurisdiction in which the act was committed.

The information we are receiving is already information the other Depts have. There is no need for us to continue to report and pass along information that we already have and the other depts have. This was the purpose of advising to spread the word that people don’t have to send us the screenshots of the person and what they posted.

We are happy you are all concerned and want to share information. We have all the information needed at this point. There has been nothing new reported to us that we don’t already have such as contact information or the fact the person has “Shillington” listed as where they live.

Please be patient and know your concerns are not going to the wind.

Thank you!

Update: The Police Dept. where the person may be residing is checking into the post. As stated before the person has no more affiliation with the Borough. While we appreciate the information it is becoming very repetitive receiving around 200 FB messages, numerous post tags, phone calls, and emails. Please spread the word that Police are aware of the post and are looking into it’s validity.

FYI- at this point it is just a post on Facebook. Until new evidence proves that this act took place or didn’t take place no one can be charged with a crime. It is also uncertain, if it occurred, where it occurred.

Again, please pass along to friends, family, etc that Law Enforcement is aware and there is no need to send the same screen shot.

Thank you!

Attention:

We are aware of a post of possible animal cruelty. However, they do not live in the Borough. Please spread the word as we do not need anymore messages advising us.

The post will be looked into to determine where they reside now.

Thank you!

Another Community Days down... with the exception of a few fireworks complaints, and a few very minor scuffles on the grounds it went off without a hitch.

Even with all the added foot/vehicle traffic there were no reported theft from vehicles or any other types of criminal activity relative to Community Days.

As always, thanks to our residents for being vigilant and supportive! Be safe!

Around 0400 hours on today’s date the Officer on duty was on patrol and observed a suspicious male in the 100 blk. of W. Broad St. The male was walking in the road close to the parked vehicles along the roadway. As the male observed the patrol vehicle he “ducked” between vehicles and out of view. The Officer circled around and visual was lost. In doing so the Officer then observed another male on S. Sterley St. at W. Broad St. pull on a car door handle. The male observed the patrol car and crossed the street into an alley way. The Officer was able to stop the male and an investigation was completed.

The male was searched and was not found to be in possession of anything other than some loose change that could have been from a vehicle, and some personal effects. The male will be cited accordingly.

Shortly thereafter a Cumru Officer that assisted in the initial call located another male in the 200 blk. of S. Wyomissing Ave. attempting to conceal himself behind vehicles when spotted. That male was stopped and questioned. After another investigation it was found the male to be wanted out of the City on an unrelated charge(s). He was subsequently transported to the Central Processing Center.

Please contact the Police if you found your vehicle has been gone through and/or anything is missing.

As always remain vigilant, lock your car doors, and report anything suspicious to the Police.

Thank you and be safe!

Attention residents:

Summer has officially started and so have the theft from vehicle/rummaged vehicle reports.

We have taken a handful of reports from residents where their vehicles were entered and items taken and/or just rummaged through. There is no prime location as they have occurred on different sides of the Borough.

These incidents are usually isolated to a week or two and they are gone.

We cannot stress enough to Lock Your Car whenever you are not in it. As said in the past the criminals look for crimes of opportunity ie: unlocked doors. They walk up and down streets pulling handles. They are not breaking into cars by force. That is not to say it couldn’t happen.

Keep your valuables locked up or out of sight and lock the doors. This is the absolute best deterrent for someone entering your vehicle. Remind your friends, relatives, etc that live in other areas as well because this doesn’t just happen in the Borough, but anywhere and everywhere.

Please be safe, keep a watchful eye, report anything suspicious, and most of all enjoy your summer!!

Attention residents:

With the weather finally changing over to spring it is also bringing along criminals going through cars.

Last night/early morning today a few vehicles were entered. The vehicles were unlocked and some items were taken.

This occurred in the east end of the Borough in the March and Gregg St areas.

We cannot stress enough to ensure you lock your vehicles at night. This is the biggest deterrent and preventative for becoming a victim of a theft from vehicle or someone just entering and rummaging.

As always contact the Police with any reports of suspicious activity or persons.

Be Safe!!

Please take a moment and read this shared post for tips to keep you safe while using ride sharing services.

In light of the tragedy involving the University of South Carolina student, we wanted to offer some ride sharing tips. When ordering a ride, both Uber and Lyft provide you with the driver’s name, picture, make and model of car and license plate information. When your car arrives, don’t ask the driver if he’s here for you, have him say your name. Also, look for the glowing beacon many drivers use to indicate they are an Uber or Lyft driver. When en route, tape the “share status” in the app. That shares your driver’s name, photo license plate, and location with a friend or family member you send it to. They can track your trip without the app. Also, if in danger, pressing the lock button on the side of an iPhone five times fast will initiate an emergency. For newer versions of iOS , hold the lock button and the volume up or down until the SOS feature activates. And always try and travel in groups, never let a friend leave alone.

Berks County residents are reminded to NOT call 911 to report power outages or inquire as to when power will be back on.

Call 911 only when you believe there is a public safety hazard. Do not approach any downed lines and remember that lines can fall on other things (guardrails, trees, fences, etc.) and cause them to be energized a significant distance from the line itself.

Call your electric utility with non-public safety power issues.

It's snow season! Please review the Shillington Borough Ordinance for sidewalk snow removal. Shillington's Ordinance requires that property owners clear adjacent sidewalks within 24 hours of the first accumulation.
REMEMBER:
- You are just as responsible for clearing ice on your sidewalk as you are for clearing snow. The sooner and more completely you shovel, the less likely that ice will form.
- If you're going on vacation, make arrangements for someone to take over while you are away.

Hey guys....good call on canceling trick or treating till today...it was pretty messy out last night👊👊.
One of your local residents posted this recently. It may be fake, but it still has animal cruelty.
Shillington Police Department, you need to find out what Sean Baumener of Shillington is doing in your community. He is posting information about how he threw an M-80 at a kitten. Can you check this out because this is against Animal Cruelty Laws 's as it is illegal in Pennsylvania to mistreat, neglect, or abandon animals, or to tether dogs outside under certain conditions. Penalties can range from fines to felony charges. Cruelty to animals is illegal in Pennsylvania, as it is across the country. I am not sure if this is true or not but he posted it and then went back several days later and said it wasnt true. Someone should check just the same.
Could we please address the nightly fireworks?
