If you heard loud sirens and saw bright flashing lights earlier tonight do not be alarmed! It was just Santa and his friends from the Middletown Volunteer Fire Department and Middletown Borough Police Department. The MVFD and MPD partnered up this holiday season and delivered Christmas trees to four families in Middletown Borough that were not as fortunate as others have been. We hope that everyone enjoys their holiday season and most of all be safe! Merry Christmas

A victim reported to Swatara Township Police that he received a phone call from our office number stating he had a warrant for his arrest and he needed to pay by 2pm tomorrow or the US Justice Dept would come and arrest him. He also received the same type of call yesterday from the Sheriff's Dept. It appears that the suspect(s) may be using a "spoofing" App to make the calls using Law Enforcement Agency phone numbers. Please be advised that the police would not take this approach when advising someone of a warrant for their arrest.
