A frustrated citizen reported an encounter with “kids” at last night’s council public safety meeting. This string at a local facebook page is another about the actions and antics that Columbia’s “kids” are party to. People have been complaining about “kids” for years; remember this classic?
Another group of frustrated citizens will meet! “Good news, the library has offered us a room for Columbia PA Crime Watch to meet. The meeting will be held November 6th from 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM all are welcome to attend. Donations to the library are appreciated. Hope to see many of you. We will be discussing current arrests and ways to combat crime. Please let me know if you will be attending I will have some handouts” – SOURCE: A post at this local facebook page.

From the POLICE LOG in today’s LNP – Always Lancaster: “MOUNT JOY: Quincy V. Mancotywa, 22, of 521 Locust St., Columbia, was charged after an incident Sept. 21 in the 500 block of West Main Street, police said.” and “LANCASTER TWP.: Sandy Tejada, 25, of Columbia, has been charged as the result of a crash Sept. 17 at Manor Shopping Center, police said. Tejada drove his vehicle through the parking lot before crashing into a front pillar at Regal Cinemas, police said.”
