It’s not uncommon to get sleepy during work, particularly on a rainy Monday. But one local employee took his desire for a nap one step too far – and got caught by police.
Shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday, Newtown Township Police were dispatched to a business located within the 800 block of Newtown-Yardley Road for a report of an unknown male in the caller’s vehicle.
When officers responded, they located the subject, 20-year-old Kevin Shan of Lancaster Avenue in Philadelphia. Shan, who is an employee of a nearby business, told the officers that he was tired and wanted to take a nap. He admitted to police that he did not have permission to be in the car and in fact did not know who the owner of the car was.
Police told Shan to leave the car and issued a citation charging him with disorderly conduct.
Also on Monday, police said a resident of Coachwood Court came to Headquarters around 10 a.m. to report that her green picnic umbrella was stolen from her back yard at some point after 8:30 p.m. on Saturday and was discovered missing Sunday around 12:30 p.m. The victim told police that the umbrella was attached to a table and had been unscrewed from the base.
