Attorney for Lansdale Man Asks For Delay in Murder Trial
Trial for a Lansdale man accused of murdering his mother on October 31st is not likely to see an April 26th court date. Warren Pennick, who walked in to the Lansdale Borough Police department on Halloween night and told officers he killed his mother, is seeking a three month delay. Police say, the 54-year-old man stabbed his mother, lorriane, several times. Detectives found the 79-year-old woman at the bottom of the steps in the basement of her Salford Avenue home. A psychologist, who examined Pennick, determined that he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. Judge Carolyn Carluccio will make a decision to determine if a new trail date is warranted.

There’s 50 fewer pounds of pot on the streets of Montgomery County today after the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office reveals the outcome of a bust that used the strategy of wire tapping to make arrests and break-up a marijuana operation that used Norristown as its staging point for delivery. Six suspects are behind bars, including 26-year-old Ryan Gavlick and and 36-year-old Jason Bishop. According to the investigation, Gavlick used 14 cell phones to avoid detection since 2005, when he first came to the attention of police. The bust went down on March 8th when Gavlick attempted to sell pot to undercover officers. Police confiscated 50 pounds of pot, more than 23-grand in suspected drug proceeds, two firearms and various cell phones.
