Just hours before police were set to arrest him, a man suspected of trying to abduct a 13-year-old girl from the Strafford Road train station earlier this month was released on bail from Chester County Prison Monday. John S. Merrill, 28, who had been held at the prison on an unrelated charge, then disappeared. Tredyffrin police said they are mounting an intense search for Merrill, who is originally from Paoli. In a warrant, police accuse Merrill of approaching the Strafford teen as she crossed the train station parking lot about 4 p.m. Oct. 19. The girl told police that the man who approached her had his left hand on a silver handgun and threatened to shoot her if she did not get into his pickup truck.

After a three-week investigation, Tredyffrin police have determined that a teenage girl's report of a sexual assault last month was unfounded. Many area residents were stunned to hear the report of the incident, which the girl told police had occurred shortly before 7 p.m. on Sept. 25, when she was attacked by a lone male at the corner of Bair and Keller Roads while riding her bicycle. Tredyffrin Police Lt. Robert Lanyon said the department had spent the last three weeks investigating the incident and had failed to uncover any information that would substantiate the teen's account.

A Wayne man has filed a civil lawsuit charging that the Tredyffrin police department deprived him of his civil rights when he was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in December.

A Tredyffrin man accused of distributing heroin to a friend who fatally overdosed is facing criminal charges, the Chester County District Attorney's Office said Tuesday. Officials said Dillon Quinn, 19, bought the drugs Aug. 8 at the Overbrook train station in Philadelphia using money given to him by 19-year-old Colin Finn. Finn, who had taken the train from Paoli and met Quinn at the station, overdosed on heroin the following day in Berwyn, officials said. Quinn, who officials said did not pay for the drugs but kept some of the heroin for setting up the deal, has been charged with a felony of delivering a drug that resulted in death, among other related offenses.

Teleflex has put itself through a corporate makeover: In recent years the $2 billion (yearly sales) company sold or closed its old vehicle- and industrial-controls factories, cut its workforce in half, and remade itself as a multinational medical-devices maker. This worked, at least for shareholders: Teleflex stock has been trading at record levels. Next step was to do something about its 1970s-era offices in Limerick Township. "We were in a large campus, off the main thoroughfares, where we had manufacturing facilities for the now-divested operations, reflective of our previous era," says Cam Hicks , Teleflex's vice president for global human resources.

Mrs. Carson died of a heart attack, according to the Chester County coroner. A call from a neighbor on quiet Homestead Road alerted police to the possibility that something was wrong.

Triumph Group , whose 14,000 workers make aircraft parts in 21 U.S. states, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, hosted a grateful Welsh leader at its Tredyffrin Township headquarters last week. Carwyn Jones, first minister of Wales, one of the four nations that form the United Kingdom (England is the biggest), made the journey Thursday. He said he did not feel too foreign. "The Welsh know about Pennsylvania," he said. Founder William Penn sold a chunk of Tredyffrin in the late 1600s to Welsh settlers, who named it (based on the Welsh for "valley town")

In an agreement between Tredyffrin Township and Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection, the township said it expects to replace a 36-year-old sewage pipeline that ruptured and has spilled millions of gallons of untreated sewage in the last few years into Valley Forge National Historical Park and Valley Creek, a tributary of the Schuylkill. Tredyffrin and its municipal authority violated the state's Clean Streams Law in three sewage-line ruptures in March 2012 and February and March 2014, in which more than 18.3 million gallons of sewage spilled into Valley Creek, according to a Nov. 21 court order from Chester County Court.

"He was angry over the placement of those shrubberies at a place where he usually had more access. It bothered him," Sgt. Todd Bereda said. "And we're not talking about large trees.

YOU SHOULD NEVER go back on your word, unless you're Darren Walp, then you should probably go back on all of them. Walp, 33, was arrested for the second time this summer for allegedly screaming racial slurs Saturday while on his way to a country-music concert in Camden. "We never want to see this individual in the city of Camden again," Camden County Police Chief J. Scott Thomson said in a news release. According to Camden County Police, Walp, of Ridley Park, was on his way to the Blake Shelton concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center about 3:30 p.m. when he got out of his red pickup truck at a stoplight at Broadway and Morgan streets to grab a beer from the bed of his truck.

The most populous town in the wealthiest county in Pennsylvania — Tredyffrin Township — stretches from the last five stops on the Paoli Local, north across U.S. 202, to Valley Forge. It's home to shady ridges lined with brick-fronted homes, to big companies whose bosses live nearby — Ametek, AmerisourceBergen, TE Connectivity, Triumph Group — and to roughly as much office space as both of Center City's Liberty Place towers, with the Comcast Center thrown in. Yet most of its office inventory, built in the 1980s or earlier, is "in danger of becoming outdated," warns a report by the Chester County township's Business Development Advisory Council.
