Please have a safe and happy 4th. In response to numerous questions, although PA’s fireworks law does allow for Aerials and Rockets now, there are still several conditions that must be met when using them. Most importantly, they must not be discharged within 150’ of any structure. Please call 911 if you observe unsafe use or handling of fireworks.
A reminder that the West York Memorial Day Parade will begin tomorrow (Monday) morning at 9:00 am. Please see our Facebook Page for Parade Route & more details.
Traffic patterns on W Market , Adams, Orange & W. Philadelphia Streets will be affected.
We look forward to seeing you at the Parade.
Moments ago, West York Officers gave foot chase to an individual armed with a knife and face covering who had reportedly been casing local businesses this evening. The individual was dressed in all black w/ a black bandanna & discarded a large knife while fleeing. Aided by West Manchester, he was subdued in the 1300 block of West Market St. Anyone who saw an individual matching this description this evening is asked to call the WYBPD. He had been reported to be in the area of Smokers Outlet earlier this evening, and at the time of his arrest, had been outside of the Dollar General.
The Tornado Warning for York County has been extended to 7:41 pm. Although the weather system is tracking East, please continue to remain in a safe place. Currently storm predictions indicate the East York / Wrightsville & Lancaster areas will be most effected.
