Friday, April 15, 2016 by The Press in Police Log

Lower Saucon Police arrested Danial Watson, 44, of Main Street in Hellertown, was charged after officers found him asleep in his car late April 3.

According to police, Watson’s car was in the Leithsville Road Subway restaurant parking lot just before midnight when they confronted him. He was awakened but disoriented, smelled of alcohol, and allegedly vomited and urinated on himself.

Police said the car keys were not in the ignition and the engine was cold, so they gave Watson a non-traffic citation for public drunkenness and allowed him to call a friend for a ride home.

No reports

Monday, April 4, 2016 by The Press in Police Log

Readers over the past few months may have noticed a lack of regular police reports regarding the city of Bethlehem. This is because the primary source of such by the Press for the past few years has been overnight report templates made publicly available by the Bethlehem Police Department on its blog.

The department stopped posting those reports late last year. Police Chief Mark DiLuzio said the department is undergoing a million-dollar technology upgrade which has necessitated all reports, past and present, be upgraded in what he described as an arduous process.
