Family Displaced By SWAT Raid Reimbursed By County Funds
TRAINER, Pa. (CBS) – Delaware and Montgomery county officials pooled resources to pay for the damages and repairs to a Delaware County home invaded in July by a SWAT team looking for a man suspected of multiple murders. Most of the money has been dispersed and officials hope to put the matter to rest by the end of the year.
Delaware County Solicitor John McBlain says at the time the home was being rented by Gary Krobath, Krobath called police to let them know Mark Geisenheyner was holed up inside. A raid involving tear gas commenced, resulting in a considerable amount of damage. (see related story)
“The district attorney’s offices wanted to make sure that the victims were made whole. There was extensive damage caused to the home and the personal property of those who lived there. So, we have had an insurance adjuster who has been working on the claim to make sure the damage was repaired and the personal property would be cleaned and to try to work to get these folks back into their home.”
Funds were also used to pay for Mr. and Mrs. Krobath’s stay at a nearby hotel. McBlain says they are just double checking now to make sure any loose ends are taken care of.
