By Alex Lloyd Gross

20 years ago, the guy in the above photo might have gotten away with his crime. In 2019 It’s a sure bet he will be in jail.  He is wanted for a home invasion robbery on Sanger Street.  Philly cops gave this account of what happened:

On August 8, 2019, at approximately 4:35pm, 15th District officers received a radio call for a “Person with a gun” at 20xx Sanger Street. Upon arrival, they were met by the victims, a 42 year-old male along with a 45 year-old female, who were in the process of moving. While packing and cleaning the property, an unknown black male walked through the opened front door, pointed a handgun at the victims demanding money and cell phones. After taking approximately $1900 and 2 cell phones, the suspect fled and was last seen east on Sanger Street towards Torresdale Avenue.
