Trappe Man Allegedly Held Up A Pottstown Store With Pliers

Nathaniel Nalder, of Trappe, has been charged with felony robbery and related offenses after police say he threatened a Pottstown convenience store clerk with a pair of pliers and made off with less than $100.

Nathaniel Nalder, of W. Main Street in Trappe, has been charged with robbing a Turkey Hill store in Pottstown, allegedly threatening the clerk with a pair of pliers, according to the Pottstown Mercury.

The Pottstown Police Department reported that Nalder entered the Turkey Hill on the 700 block of North Charlotte Street with his shirt pulled over his face and demanded money.

When the clerk asked if Nalder was serious, he pulled out a pair of pliers and said "yeah, give me all the money," according to police.

When the cash only amounted to less than $100, Nalder demanded the Clerk's cell phone, police said. The clerk refused, instead offering Nalder the store phone.

Nalder, 32, fled the store and was found by police in possession of the cash, which was confirmed to match the amount of money missing from the Turkey Hill cash register, according to court documents.

Editor's Note: The patch article, as well as the linked Mercury article, erroneously states that Nalder lives in Collegeville.  He is actually a Trappe resident.

Wow. Is prison really worth $100 and a crappy cell phone. I never ceases to amaze me how stupid people really are.
