To recap, in the last 168 hours in Wilkes-Barre:

I was going to say something else, but I was too distracted by the sound of my property value plummeting.  Come on Wilkes-Barre, wtf?

People are shitbags.

I went to pick up a Turkey Hoagie from Black Dog Deli for lunch and seen the following outside of the restaurant:

This deli is located on Lee Park Ave somewhat down the street down from where I used to live.  Right across from St. Al’s Church.  How much of an asshole do you have to be to stoop as low as to steal an SPCA collection container?!  I’m sure there was what, maybe 4-5 dollars, maybe 10 dollars at most in the container?  And don’t give me that crap that its because the economy is bad and someone had to steal the money to buy a loaf of bread for their family or buy diapers for their baby momma.  Its bullshit.  You know they took that money and went to buy drugs or booze with it.  How do I know?  Hmmmmm, lets see, in the last few months, the Pantry Quik was robbed, Phillies Phinest was robbed, the Dog Groomer was robbed and there was a major fugitive found on our street that stole money to buy heroin.  This is all within less than a 1 mile radius.  It doesn’t take a rocket science to figure it all out. 

I hope you choked after chugging down your 2 40oz of beer, asshat.  YOU WILL BE CAUGHT.  SOON.

That is all.

****UPDATE – The story has made it to WNEP.

Now what

By M Davies   /     Apr 21, 2008  /     I hate my neighbors, NEPA, The WTF File  /     0 Comment

On Monday of last week, Rich put up a "For Sale by Owner" sign on our house in Hanover Township. 

On Thursday of the same week, I received an email from my friend to my cell phone that there was a report of body parts being found in suitcases and bags behind the school that was directly across the street from where I lived.

What the hell….

Hanover Township, Lee Park was a great place to live when my grandparents still lived in the house.  There were 2 parks in the area, a farm, parades and a general "community atmosphere" type of feeling.  Back then, no one locked their doors, everyone knew everyone and were respectful of each other and each other’s property.  Now that all of the older folks have died off or are dying off, the houses are being sold off at rock bottom prices to scumbags who care very little for their neighbors.  And care even less about their property, or the way it looks.

Before I moved I had my screen doors, doors and windows all locked up like fort knox.  Many of you that have been to my house make fun of me for this…Who’s laughing now? 

In the last few years, the Convenient mart was robbed (and the owner chased the guy out of the store with a golf club), the pet groomer was robbed, there were scumbags 2 houses down that robbed a donut shop, numerous times guns were pulled at the St. Al’s bazaar, there was a guy a street over who killed a toddler, another douche bag that crapped his pants when he was arraigned at the magistrates office down the street (for real), and lets not forget the drug dealing that went on in the park and now the body parts. 

Lee Park isn’t exactly what it is/was years ago.  The park that was at St. Al’s was paved over and made a parking lot.  Businesses have come and gone.  The park in Hanover Twp near the high rise is a mess, dirty and shady people hang out in there.  You barely even see your neighbors most days, let alone get to know them on a personal level.  It is just a sad, sad state of affairs.

At any rate, so there were two body’s found on Loxley Street which is an alley that runs parallel to the school.  One body was in the woods right near the elementary school (comprised of K-2nd grade) in 2 bags/suitcases, and the other body was found the next day in 11 Loxley Street.  The police are calling this a murder-suicide, as the two guys identified knew each other and had a romantic relationship with one another.  Apparently what happened was that the guy found in the house committed suicide after he had heard someone discovered the body parts…the guy who was dismembered was killed back in January or something inside of the 11 Loxley Street house.  Apparently the two broke up, and the guy that offed himself murdered and cut up the dismembered guy after the fight/break up and threw his body parts in the woods.  Yeah, fun stuff folks.  What’s worse is the guy who apparently killed the other guy has a violent past, and has violated PFAs, etc.

Its a trainwreck.  One question burning in the back of my mind….no one heard anything?  no one saw anything?  Is good samaritanship out the window? 

And furthermore, who is going to want to buy a house in the neighborhood after all of this crap?  I’m already going to have a hard enough time selling it with the price I have in mind and the housing market in its current state.  Property Value.  Through the floor boards.

So at any rate, here are some related articles to yet another crime that has happened in Hanover Township.  It’s good bedtime reading folks.

Another Day, Another Cuff-n-Stuff

By M Davies   /     Mar 02, 2008  /     I hate my neighbors, NEPA  /     0 Comment

Scene:  10pm last night, slightly down the street in the direction of St. Al’s, opposite side of street.  A car (early 90s Subaru?) was pulled over by a Hanover Twp officer. 

A few minutes later another police car arrives. 

Then the Hanover Twp Police Jeep. 

Then the Hanover Twp Fire SUV. 

They pull the guy out of his car and search it.  A few minutes later a wrecker arrives and proceeds to tow the car? 

A few minutes after that everything was cleared up and all was back to normal in the quiet, peaceful neighborhood of Lee Park.

I haven’t been able to track this one down in the Police Blotter yet.  Maybe tomorrow?

Followup: The scumbags down the street

Yippeeeee!  An update taken from Timesleader.com:

Accused doughnut shop thief charged in 2nd robbery

Store surveillance videos tie Roy William Deronde to earlier store robbery, police charge.

EDWARD LEWIS elewis@timesleader.com


KINGSTON – Hours before Roy William Deronde took part in a Jan. 9 robbery at Curry Donuts in Fairview Township, he held up the Uni-Mart on Market Street in Kingston, police said.

Kingston police linked Deronde, 34, of Prospect Street, Wilkes-Barre, to the Uni-Mart robbery by surveillance videos recorded at the two businesses. The videos show a man matching Deronde’s description holding a silver-colored weapon, a toy gun he used in both robberies, police said.

Kingston police charged Deronde Friday with two counts of robbery and a single count of theft. He was arraigned before District Judge Paul J. Roberts Jr. in Kingston and recommitted to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $25,000 bail.

Deronde had been in jail for lack of $50,000 bail since last week on charges he robbed the Curry Donuts store.

Deronde is also suspected in two robberies earlier this month in Hanover Township, at Tails R Wagn, a pet grooming business on Lee Park Avenue, and at PCS Service Station on the Sans Souci Highway.

Hanover Township police Detective Al Walker said there are similarities among the four robberies, quickly adding that Deronde hasn’t been charged with the robberies in Hanover Township.

Deronde was arrested at the home of Ronald Raimondi, 54, and his son, Steven Ramondi, 30, on Lee Park Avenue shortly after the Fairview Township robbery.

Fairview Township police suspect Deronde entered Curry Donuts on state Route 309 at about 10 p.m. and threatened a clerk with a gun before getting away with a small amount of cash. Ronald Ramondi and his son were waiting in a car outside the doughnut store, township police said.

About six hours earlier, at around 4:30 p.m., Ramondi walked into the Uni-Mart and told a clerk: “Let’s go, let’s get the (expletive) money out,” Kingston police said.

The clerk turned around and saw a man who was identified as Deronde holding a silver-colored handgun, police said. Deronde told the clerk to get the money out of the cash register and lottery drawer, then told the clerk to lie on the floor before Deronde ran out of the store, police said.

According to the criminal complaint filed by Capt. John Jorda and Detective Thomas Paratore:

Deronde admitted that he robbed the Uni-Mart and that he was under the influence of heroin at the time. Deronde claimed he waited behind the Uni-Mart for about 20 minutes before he entered the store because he didn’t want a confrontation with any customers.

On Thursday, Deronde waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Central Court in connection with the Fairview Township robbery, sending two counts of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery to Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.

Ronald Raimondi and Steven Ramondi also waived their preliminary hearings. Charges of conspiracy to commit robbery for their alleged role in the Fairview Township incident are headed to county court.

Kingston police said the Ramondis were not involved in the Uni-Mart robbery.

A preliminary hearing for Deronde related to the Uni-Mart robbery is scheduled for Jan. 24 in Central Court.
