Lancaster's Most WantedEach week the Lancaster City Police Department posts a “Top 10 Warrant List of Persons,” a list of the most wanted criminals in Lancaster, PA. As you might expect, it’s mostly about parking tickets.

Today I’m kicking off a new category on this blog, Public Safety, with what I expect will be a weekly reposting of the city police department’s most wanted.

Week of NOVEMBER 29, 2009
1 Boas Antoinette 400 Blk S. Ann St. 10 parking, 11 compulsory school
2 Colon Pedro 200 Blk W Mifflin St. 18 parking, 1 abandoned vehicle

  1. So, let me understand this. Muggings, shootings, stabbings, and gang warfare are regularly reported in the city, but those on this “list of the most wanted criminals in Lancaster, PA” are wanted for parking tickets? To all who have worked and are working so hard to revitalize Lancaster and make it a place that is as culturally vital as it has the potential to be: it isn’t going to happen on a large scale until our Mayor and our Police Department rethinks their priorities. Oh, but it will be nice when Mayor Gray has trolleys running through the streets…
