Alert Neighbor Thwarts Upper Milford Robbery

Thank an alert neighbor for this one.

said a neighbor called to report suspicious activity at 5772 Kings Highway S. in Upper Milford Township about 10:25 a.m. Oct. 18. What police say they found was a man collecting valuables in a blue tarp, tossing it over a fence and preparing to leave.

The neighbor saw a man, identified as Valentin Florentin Stana, 35, but no address provided, entering and exiting the home several times through a back door, police said. The neighbor also saw the man in the upstairs of the home through a window.

Eventually the man tossed a tarp containing valuables over a fence and walked around that fence to retrieve the tarp, police said.

He was arrested and charged with criminal trespass, police said.
