LIMERICK — A joint investigation by township police and the Pennsylvania Game Commission lead to the arrest of a hunter allegedly drinking and hunting in December of last year.

According to township police, officers responded to the area of Steinmetz Road and Mill Road after a resident in the 100 block called to report an act of vandalism.

Officers questioned Michael Fallon, 22, of Pottstown. In their report, police noted Fallon smelled like alcohol.

Township police called the state game commission and officers showed up to handle the hunting violations. Three shotguns, a .380 caliber handgun, and a camouflage hunting vest were brought back from the barn, police said.
According to police, all guns and hunters were accounted for except for Fallon, who told police he was not hunting and he did not have a gun.

Court records show Fallon pleaded guilty to a felony assault charge in 2010 which prevents him from owning a gun.

Fallon was charged with one felony count of carrying a prohibited firearm and one misdemeanor count of violate rules and regulations of the hunting commission.

He posted 10 percent of his $5,000 bail on Feb. 18. Fallon is expected at the Montgomery County Courthouse on April 9 at 9:30 a.m.
