Perkiomen Man Jailed for Area Burglaries, Gun Violations

David Darren Yoder plead guilty to burglaries in Perkiomen and Towamencin, weapons violations in Hatfield.

David Darren Yoder, 27, was sentenced to 11 and a half to 23 months in jail after pleading guilty to burglary and firearms violations in a series of local burglaries in 2011, according to the Times Herald.

In addition to serving time in the Montgomery County Correctional Facility, Yoder, of the 200 block of Maple Avenue in Perkiomen Township, is also required to pay $800 in restitution, complete five years of probation, and participate in drug and alcohol treatment.

Yoder was charged with burglary in Perkiomen and Towamencin in November of 2011. Yoder told police he committed at least one burglary to support his addiction to oxycodone.

In one incident on Betcher Road in Perkiomen Township, a man encountered a burglar in his home between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 16. The burglar escaped in a vehicle that was later tied to Yoder, according to police.

On Nov. 22, police caught up with Yoder after responding to a report of shots fired near the Hatfield Village Apartments and allege that Yoder was attempting to sell a gun to a Hatfield man and fired it to make sure that it worked.
