On August 25, 2020 at approximately 2:44 am, one of our officers was advised of a possible wanted person, in a vehicle, heading in his direction. This subject was wanted for an earlier altercation in the bordering township and had fled the scene prior to police arrival. Those officers believed this subject may be in the area. As the vehicle passed by our officer, the driver was recognized as the wanted subject. The officer pulled out behind the subject and his vehicle and activated his overhead emergency lights. The subject failed to pull over and continued east on East High Street. When the officer activated his siren, the subject sped up. At this time the officer was able to obtain a license plate number. Once the pursuit reached a speed deemed unsafe, the pursuit was called off due to the dangers and knowing the identity of the driver.
