Home Invasion and Murder

Montgomery County Prosecutors

Andre "Dre" Collier is charged with murder in the death of May 2013 death of Kareem Borowy.


Police arrested the final suspect wanted in the death of a teenager found shot in the back on the side of a road.

On Monday police arrested 25-year-old Andre Collier of Philadelphia as he fled a mobile home on G Coxille Road in Beaver Meadows, Carbon County.

Collier is charged in the murder of 19-year-old Kareem Borowy in Lower Pottsgrove, Township back on May 5. Collier was the only suspect at large following the arrests of his alleged co-conspirators, 21-year-old Rasheed Teel, 32-year-old Charles Freeman and 27-year-old Omar Miller.

Police say the four men entered Borowy's home on the 1200 block of Manatawny Street in West Pottsgrove Township back on May 5, shortly after 2 p.m. Neighbors say an older woman and her adopted children live inside the home. The suspects allegedly demanded money and then dragged Borowy out of the house at gunpoint.

About a half hour later, officials say a passing motorist saw Borowy waving his hand and yelling for help on the side of the road on the 2100 block of Sanatoga Station Road in Lower Pottsgrove Township. Borowy was shot in the back. An ambulance arrived but the responders were unable to save his life.

Borowy, a 2012 graduate of Pottsgrove High School, was targeted, according to investigators.

His neighbor, Dee Bleacher, says there have been prior issues at the house where the home invasion took place.

"Police have been there numerous times," said Bleacher. "Maybe once every two months on average."

Investigators suspect that drugs were involved in the murder, according to law enforcement sources close to the investigation.

Collier was arraigned and remanded to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility without bail.
