WPD: Man Throws Coworkers' Keys, Phone into Wood Chipper
Plymouth Meeting man charged with criminal mischief.
A 53-year-old Plymouth Meeting man threw his coworker’s keys and cell phone into a wood chipper, according to a report filed at the Whitemarsh Police station.
According to police, a Norristown man entered the station on the morning of May 7 to report that his coworker, Robert Joseph Duaime, of 2391 Hickory Road, Plymouth Meeting, had destroyed the property. The man told police that he works for a tree cutting company, which was operating at Joshua Road and 1st Street in Lafayette Hill.
The alleged victim also told police that while he and Duaime had an ongoing dispute, that Duaime threw the phone and keys into the wood chipper "for no reason."
Police responded to the location and spoke with Duaime, who admitted to destroying the property, according to the report. Police then advised Duaime that he could either pay for the destroyed property or be cited for criminal mischief, but Duaime stated that he would rather be cited, police said.
