From the Vault article involved grandfather, safe: Letter to the Editor

Posted

My wife was reading the Dec. 27 P&J and then she said, “OMG!”

The old news article that you printed on the From the Vault page about a robbery of $26,000 was my grandfather’s house in Penbrook.

I never knew how many were involved in the robbery and that one was from Middletown. I do know that they found the safe near Indiantown Gap.

The frightening thing is we lived in Colonial Park and these robbers were watching our house because with my grandmother being in the hospital, my grandfather was coming to our house for dinner.

The night of the robbery, my grandfather was going to stop at the house before going into the hospital but he didn’t. Who knows if he would have ran into them!
