Lansdale Man Facing Gun Charges in New Hanover
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            A Lansdale man faces two felony gun charges in New Hanover following a Feb. 4 incident. Local authorities arrested Edward Francis Cordenner III, 36, after responding to a residence on Coleflesh Road for a suspicious person.

            Cordenner has been charged with one felony count each of possession of a prohibited firearm and possession of a firearm without a license, as well as misdemeanor counts of possession of an instrument of crime, resisting arrest, defiant trespassing and loitering and prowling.

            He was remanded to Montgomery County jail after Lafayette Hill District Judge Dara Nasatir set bail in the case at $75,000 monetary, according to information posted on a state judicial website.

            According to law enforcement officials, Cordenner possessed a pair of night vision goggles and a magazine containing nine 9mm rounds. Police claim to have discovered a 9mm handgun on the ground near where he was patted down.

            At approximately 1:21 a.m. on Feb. 4, three officers responded to the residence for the report of a suspicious person. The caller stated that she heard someone knocking on her bedroom window, which was located on the side of the structure.

            Two of the officers made contact with Cordenner between a parked pickup truck and the garage. He told police he was there to pick up his motorcycle, according to the police criminal complaint filed in the Douglass Township court of District Judge Maurice Saylor.

            When Cordenner was asked for identification, he allegedly became aggressive and began to make erratic movements. When the officers told him that he was being detained, the subject began to resist.

            Eventually, after being ordered to stop resisting multiple times, Cordenner was taken to the ground. The officer gained control and took him to the rear right side of a patrol vehicle to be searched, according to the affidavit of probable cause.

            The recovered firearm was found to have one round in the chamber and 12 rounds in a magazine. Cordenner did not possess a concealed carry permit, according to the legal document.

            A preliminary hearing in the case, before Nasatir, has been scheduled for 11:15 a.m. on Feb. 13.
