A N ABINGTON Township police officer was hospitalized and an alleged bank robber was in custody Friday, after a car chase that began in Jenkintown and "wound all over Philadelphia," police said.
Abington Deputy Police Chief John Livingood said that about 11:15 a.m. Aaron K.M. Thomas, 47, of West Philly, went into the PNC Bank on Old York Road near Township Line, tossed a plastic bag on the teller's counter, and said: "Fill it up." He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and drove southbound on Broad Street in a black Range Rover. Abington police pursued the vehicle as it zigzagged throughout the city.
