West Nor­ri­ton po­lice De­tec­tive Charles Naber was awarded a chief’s com­men­da­tion by po­lice Chief Dale Mabry Feb. 12 for help­ing the Philadel­phia po­lice ap­pre­hend an armed rob­bery sus­pect Jan. 15.

While as­signed to a sur­veil­lance de­tail for the Mont­gomery County Nar­cotics En­force­ment Team, Naber was driv­ing near the in­ter­sec­tion of 44th and San­som streets when he ob­served two Philadel­phia po­lice of­fi­cers chas­ing a 17-year-old Philadel­phia man.

The man tried to elude the two of­fi­cers by run­ning into an al­ley­way, and Naber used his ve­hi­cle to block the man’s es­cape route and helped the po­lice of­fi­cers ap­pre­hend him. A loaded firearm was re­cov­ered from the sus­pect.

The Philadel­phia po­lice of­fi­cers told Naber that the man was a sus­pect in an armed rob­bery in the 4400 block of San­som Street.

“Be­cause of De­tec­tive Naber’s alert­ness and prompt re­sponse, a felon was cap­tured and he and his loaded weapon were taken off the street,” Mabry said.
