PPD Reports: DUI Suspect Spills PCP, Hazmat Team Called

Incident reports from the Plymouth Police Department.

All information is according to official police reports filed at the Plymouth Township Police Department. All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

At approximately 9 p.m. on September 7, Plymouth Police arrested Patrick Melvin Nace, 24, of the 400 block of W. 10th Avenue, Conshohocken, for DUI, drug possession, and related charges. Police also arrested a female passenger, although court records do not show her to have been charged with a crime.

According to a police report, Plymouth Police stopped Nace and his passenger after they were observed riding an unregistered dirt bike on Brook Road near Colwell Lane. Police observed Nace to have slurred speech and dilated pupils, and also said he gave a fake name.

After Nace was taken into custody, police say he spilled a vial of what they suspected to be the drug PCP, which the officers did not locate upon an initial search, across his lap inside the patrol car, requiring a hazmat team to be called in and Brook Road to be shut down in both directions. Responding officers then donned hazmat suits as they hosed off Nace to decontaminate him. The police officer’s vehicle was deemed unsafe due to a strong chemical smell and towed from the scene.

Court records show that Nace is currently confined to Montgomery County prison in lieu of $10,000 bail, and is scheduled for a prelimary hearing in late October.

At approximately 2:03 a.m. on September 9, Plymouth Police arrested Kara Cherice Kelley, of the 100 block of Hunter Road, Plymouth Meeting, after they say she was observed driving under the influence on the Ridge Pike near Regal Drive.

According to a police report, Kelley was driving her vehicle in the wrong lane of traffic without its headlights on, and once pulled over, officers say they observed her to have glassy eyes and the smell of alcohol on her breath. Police say she then failed several field sobriety tests and was taken into custody, but refused a chemical breath test.

Public Drunkenness:
At approximately 10:18 p.m. on September 12, Plymouth Police arrested James Leake, 48, of the 6000 block of McCallum Street, Philadelphia, after police say he was riding a bicycle while intoxicated on the 1900 block of Sandy Hill Road.

According to a police report, the arresting officer stopped Leake after he observed him riding without required lighting and immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.

Retail theft:
At approximately 12:24 p.m. on September 10, Plymouth Police arrested Amanda Byrne, 25, of the 600 block of Astor Street, Norristown, after they say she stole several items from the Home Depot in Conshohocken by hiding them in her sleeves.

Retail theft:
At approximately 10:06 p.m. on September 7, an employee of BJ’s Wholesale in Conshohocken called police after store security footage showed two individuals leave through a back emergency exit with three computers and a PS3 headseat, totaling $1,949.96 in value.

The unknown actors, still at large, were both described to police as black males approximately 5’10” in height with medium builds. The first actor was wearing a white t-shirt, gray shorts, dark sneakers, white tube socks, a dark colored baseball cap with white lettering, and had a long goatee.

The second suspect was wearing a red and white horizontal striped shirt, black cargo pants, a dark, possibly Boston Redsox baseball cap, and had a lanyard around his neck.

Theft from vehicle:
At approximately 10:22 a.m. on September 10, Plymouth Police say an unknown person stole a stereo unit from a new Toyota Highlander on the lot of Conicelli Toyota. Employees advised the unit would cost $7,500 to replace.

Theft from vehicle:
At approximately 7:36 a.m. on September 11, Plymouth Police say a resident reported that someone stole $800 worth of equipment from his truck, which had been parked overnight on the 200 block of Isabella Street, Plymouth Meeting.
