Blotter: Gun Reported Stolen, DUI to be Charged

Here is the latest from the Cecil Township Police Department.

A Cecil Township man told police that someone stole a gun from inside his pickup truck.

Robert S. Sowinsky told police on Monday that a stainless steel Smith & Wesson 9mm gun had been stolen from his truck—and said he noticed it missing on Friday.

Sowinsky told police he thought it had been stolen while he was in a retail establishment in McDonald, but said he could not be sure.

The gun was in a Velcro holster, and included a double-leather magazine holder. It was attached to a black leather belt.

Sowinsky told police the value of the gun was about $800.

DUI to be Charged

A Cecil Township woman will be charged with DUI after officers reportedly saw her weaving in and out of traffic on Monday night.

Police said Margaret E. McFalls was traveling south on state Route 980 near Coleman Road when officers noticed her weaving in and out of traffic, crossing the double yellow line.

When stopped near Morganza Road, McFalls admitted to officers that she had consumed a glass of wine and two beers that evening.

Officers said they noted the odor of alcohol emanating from McFalls, and that her speech was slurred and her eyes were glassy and bloodshot.

A field sobriety test was conducted, at which time the woman showed signs of impairment, police said.

McFalls was placed under arrest for being incapable of safe driving and suspicion of driving under the influence. She was transported to the Cecil Township Police Department, where a breath-test showed she had a blood-alcohol content of .173 percent.

Charges will proceed by summons, police said.
