CRIME OF THE WEEK 12-42 Week of November 5th, 2012
On November 4, 2012, at approx. 6:06 PM, officers from the Lancaster City Bureau of Police were dispatched to Arby’s, located at 132 Park City Center, for a shooting. It was later determined to be robbery, where no shots were fired. Officers responded to the restaurant and began receiving information from Lancaster Countywide Communications regarding the suspect’s description. Responding officers from A Platoon began securing the scene and located the four employees, who had been working at Arby’s at the time of the robbery. The officers quickly escorted the employees to safety and helped evacuate employees from other, nearby businesses, since it was unknown if the suspect was still within the Park City Mall. Officers from the Pennsylvania State Police (Troop J), the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department and seven other police departments from across Lancaster County responded to assist with securing the large scene and with attempting to search the mall for the suspect. Several K-9 Units were brought in to assist with the search.
At 6:47 p.m. November 1, 2012, Lancaster City Police officers responded to Lancaster General Hospital, 555 N. Duke St. A 33-year-old New Jersey woman, later identified as Regina Anne Wallace, had made statements to LGH staff that she had been involved in a homicide in Ewing, NJ. Lancaster police officers immediately notified police in Ewing Township, NJ. Several hours later, investigators from Ewing Twp. Police advised Lancaster City Police investigators that they had issued an arrest warrant for Regina Wallace, charging her with Criminal Homicide. Wallace was subsequently arrested and charged by Lancaster City Police Det. Manual Luciano with Fugitive from Justice before MDJ Janice Jimenez. Wallace was arraigned and is currently being held in Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $1 million bail.
