NORRISTOWN PA – Residents of Perkiomenville, Collegeville, and Red Hill were arrested, and another Perkiomenville man is still being sought, following what the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said Monday (Dec. 12, 2016) was a “week-long, multi-county crackdown on ‘most wanted’ offenders for driving under the influence.
The office said it began a sweep last Monday (Dec. 5) that targeted more than 40 defendants from Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Philadelphia counties. Of those allegedly “drunk and drugged drivers,” it said in a press release, 15 were arrested and another 11 turned themselves in.
Among those taken into custody, Sheriff Sean P. Kilkenny stated, were:
- Kerry Moyer, 111 Bravington Rd., Perkiomenville, for failing to appear at a pre-trial conference, and two previous DUI charges;
- Andrew Schalleur, 103 Regents Rd., Collegeville, for failing to appear at a DUI pretrial conference; and
- Patrick O’Hara, 239 Wellington Way, Red Hill, for failing to appear at a pre-trial conference.
Not yet arrested but actively being sought, according to the release, is:
- Chong Kim, whose last known address was listed as 2917 Gottshalk Rd., Perkiomenville, on a charge of “DUI 4th offense.”
“We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to drunk driving,” Kilkenny said. “We hope that the news
of these sweeps will also serve as a deterrent to those who think they can get away with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.” The county District Attorney’s Office is currently prosecuting more than 1,400 DUI cases, and the Sheriff’s Office Warrants Division has more than 900 DUI warrants on its books.
