Mark Haas Shooter Charged with Attempted Murder
Bush League Breeders Club - The man who shot snake breeder Mark Haas in the chest back in January 2012 has been charged with attempted murder. Mark Haas has recovered, thankfully, but the world remains crazy. Read the full story after the jump.
RIDLEY TOWNSHIP – DNA evidence located by a local K-9 officer was key in cracking the bizarre case of the robbery and shooting of a Bucks County snake dealer at the Woodlyn Shopping Center in January, police said.
Police Lt. Scott Willoughby also credits the FBI and his team of detectives for putting together the evidence that linked Rasheem D. Dowdy of Allentown to the armed robbery and shooting that took place around 5 p.m. in the shopping center parking lot Jan. 22. Dowdy, who police say has an extensive criminal history in three states, is currently incarcerated on Riker’s Island in New York on rape charges.
“Darby Township Officer Mike Andrel and his K-9 partner Yago did a fantastic job,” Willoughby said. “He was able to bring us to every piece of evidence we recovered, including the black 9-millimeter Beretta used in the crime.”
An arrest warrant has been issued for Dowdy, 32, who also goes by the alias Jermaine Harper, on charges of attempted homicide firearms violations, aggravated assault, robbery and related offenses.@ Bush League Breeders Club
