Police log Feb. 11

A Ridley Park woman was charged with driving too fast for
conditions after hitting a state police patrol car in Chadds Ford Township. The
police car was stopped while the trooper was investigating a one-car accident.
According to a police report, the patrol cruiser was blocking the southbound
lanes of Route 1 south of Dickinson Drive to allow for a tow truck to remove
the crashed vehicle. The patrol car’s emergency lights were on and the trooper
was inside the vehicle. Warning flares were also set up in the roadway, the
report said. A 2003 Nissan Altima driven by 22-year-old Jenna DeLise was
traveling south at a high rate of speed, according to the report. DeLise tried
to stop, but could not do so before hitting the patrol car. She was cited for
driving at an unsafe speed. There were no injuries. The accident happened about
5:50 p.m. on Feb.6.

• State police filed multiple charges, including aggravated
assault on a police officer, following an incident at Route 202 and
Dilworthtown Road about 11:30 p.m. on Feb. 5. According to a police report, a
man identified as Phillip Harris, 47, with no known address, was charged after
police attempted to stop him because the vehicle he was driving was identified
as one involved in a theft of cigarettes in East Marlborough Township a few
hours earlier. It was also determined that the vehicle had been stolen from
Philadelphia earlier in the day. While trying to evade capture, the report
said, Harris drove into the parking lot at the Shoppes at Dilworthtown Crossing
and wound up crashing into two Westtown-East Goshen police cars, one marked,
the other unmarked. Harris then left the parking lot, driving south on Route
202 where he was eventually stopped at Hillman Drive, the report said. Charges
against Harris include, aggravated assault on a police officer, fleeing and
eluding, receiving stolen property, reckless endangering, forgery, false
identification to law enforcement and numerous others.

• A TomTom GPS unit was stolen from a vehicle parked near
the Fresh Grocer in the Shoppes at Brinton Lake on Friday, Feb. 5 between 7
a.m. and 6:30 p.m. A  state police
report said someone punched the driver side keyhole with an unknown object.
