Lansdale Coins and Collectables Shop Robbed Monday

Lansdale Police are on the scene at Hen's Coins and Collectibles for a reported robbery Monday morning

Lansdale Police are on the scene investigating a reported robbery Monday morning at Hen's Coins and Collectibles on West Main Street.

Sources informed Lansdale Patch that two men threatened the life of the business owner at knifepoint.

Owner Henry Statuty was not injured.

"I'm so thankful that Henry was not hurt," said local business owner Chris Flyzik, proprietor of Wilson's Hardware and Locksmiths, located across the street from Hen's Coins and Collectables.

Flyzik said she is very concerned about the safety of businessowners on Main Street, quoting Bob Dylan with "the times, they are a'changing."

"I'd like the borough to consider cameras, maybe on the new street lights," she said. "I think they are already wired for sound. If it's too cost-prohibitive, at least the intersection of Main and Broad streets, and the train station and Railroad Plaza."

Please stay tuned for further developments.
