Cars burglarized at Ridley Creek State Park

As reported by the delcotimes.com, cars were burglarized last Thursday at the parking lot on Barren Road by the park's entrance.  The perpetrators broke windows on three cars to gain entry and take items that were left in plain view.

These rash of break-ins at the park seem to happen from time to time.  Back in April 2010, similar incidents were reported, though the suspects were arrested.

As a precaution, leave you valuables home and keep items out of sight.

  1. I used to park over there all the time a few years ago. Times have changed. Now nothing is safe.

  2. This is horrible. The fact that people cannot enjoy a nice day in one of nation’s great suburban parks is a joke. The local police departments need to step it up in this area. How many times is this going to happen because the park’s parking areas are not patrolled? Upper Providence might want to redirect a few officers away from stalking commuters on rt 1 for going 3 miles per hour over the speed limit and send a few patrol cars around the parking areas on Ridley Creek Road and Chapel Hill Road. I’m not sure what to do about the cars that park parallel to the creek on Barren Road and in the direct parking lot that forms the start of Sycamore Mills road because that is in Middletown. Middletown has no police force and chooses to sponge off of the rest of the state’s taxpayers. There are officers who work for the park, but I’m sure they’re fewer and farther between due to state budget cuts.

    In any event, there needs to be an increased police presence in that parking area.

      What is wrong with wisdom? You've got to go to a blog for DUMMIES. B&N has a whole category. Check it out.

  6. While at it maybe cops can look into tire slashings that happen at the park during deer hunting season. RCSP is notorious for being anti-hunter and pro-bambi. I installed a video in my car that I plan on using to find out who is doing this.

    1. If idiots are slashing tires over a deer hunt, that is beyond moronic. Any decent environmentalist will tell you that hunters taking deer out of Ridley Creek State Park do the ecosystem a great service.
      The tire slashing issues further reinforce the lack of appropriate police coverage in the area of the park. Hopefully the speeding ticket quota was filled at least.
