Charged with stealing from family who took him in

Posted: January 05, 2014

This crime could fall into either the "no good deed goes unpunished" or "choose your friends wisely" category. Or both.

A Montgomery County family discovered $8,000 to $10,000 worth of silverware and jewelry missing shortly after they evicted an acquaintance who had been living at their home since early November.

The thefts, reported Monday, occurred in the 1300 block of Welsh Road, Towamencin Township, according to police.

An investigation found that David Robert Danner had allegedly been hocking the stolen goods starting Nov. 9 at a Lansdale pawn shop and received $2,100 for the items, police said.

Danner, 29, of Yearling Drive, New Hope, was charged with theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property. He was remanded to the Montgomery County prison with bail set at $10,000.
