Police closed intersections and surrounded Sovereign Bank in Emmaus Friday but it was apparently a false alarm.
State and local police with guns drawn surrounded Sovereign Bank at 1215 Chestnut St. in Emmaus around 1 p.m. Friday. Customers at the East Penn Plaza strip mall next to the bank say they saw police shut down all four intersections there and draw weapons outside the bank until a bank employee motioned to them, apparently indicating that everything was OK. Police then left the scene and activity at the bank returned to normal. There's no indication yet as to what prompted the response. The same Sovereign Bank was robbed at least twice in recent years. Police dogs and a state police helicopter were deployed for a manhunt after a July 2011 robbery. The bank was robbed previously on July 2, 2010.

Emmaus grad never thought "cute" underwear shot would end up online.
The town of Emmaus, Pa. continues to buzz over a teen sexting-porn scandal revealed when parents complained to police several days ago. As officials investigate, one young woman talks about what it's like having photos of her on an X-rated website where users can search for porn under categories like "college bitches" and "drunk/passed out." T. and a girlfriend posed in their underwear in front of a mirror because they thought they looked "cute," she told Patch.

An online image board where users can post raunchy photos – with or without a subject’s consent – is one of the sites where nude …
