A tough lesson from the crime-fighting handbook

There is a saying that crime doesn’t pay.

But that doesn’t mean you have to pay for it with your life.

That’s apparently what happened to a Phoenixville man who police believe tried to break into a Chester Township business over the weekend.

You can read about it here. He didn’t make it.

Charles Ancrum apparently got stuck in the window. Police theorize he was standing on a work horse to gain access to the window when he slipped. He suffered a broken neck.

Worse, he hung there until someone discovered his body Monday morning.
