Conshohocken police and SWAT arrest wanted man at Matson Mill apartments in Conshohocken

Late on the afternoon of January 3rd, residents of the Matson Mill Apartments and nearby buildings reported in messages and calls to that there was a large police presence, including SWAT, at the Matson Mill apartments. Matson Mill is one of the two recently opened apartment communities along the Schuylkill River just above the Matsonford Bridge.

In a press release after the incident, the Conshohocken Police Department shared that it, along with the Upper Merion Township and Central Montgomery County SWAT, served an arrest warrant on a male who was wanted. According to police, the male was taken into custody and there is no danger to the public. No police were injured.

A reader submitted a video of police around the building. Please note that the audio of the video was removed at the person’s request.

The management of Matson Mill sent two emails about the incident to residents. The first came at 4:36 p.m. stating the management was aware that police were on the property and to “not be alarmed as we are aware and there is no danger to anyone on site.”

In a follow-up email at 6:44 p.m., the management of the property wrote:

Some of you may have noticed a team of law enforcement personnel here today. We were working closely with law officials to minimize the disruption to our residents, however, their presence may have caused concern. Thank you all for your cooperation during this time. Law enforcement is no longer on the property and everything is okay. If you have any questions regarding this incident, we ask that you contact the Conshohocken Police Department as the management team has limited information.

We will work on finding out who was arrested and share anything more we learn.
