Loitering and avoiding apprehension
SHAMOKIN — Charles Jonathan Ammon, 39, last known address of 325 N. Shamokin St., Apt. 1B, was charged by Patrolman Brandon Cohick with misdemeanors of flight to avoid apprehension and loitering and prowling at night time and one summary count of public drunkenness in relation to an incident in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police observed four individuals, including Ammon, walking near Turkey Hill at 1:35 a.m. and heard a male state what sounded like, “I didn’t do anything.” Officers drove by the male in an attempt to get a better look at his face and said he repeatedly looked back at them as he walked. When attempting to try to stop him to speak, they said Ammon kept disappearing. When they caught up with him, Ammon apologized and said he was scared because he had a warrant out for his arrest from the Northumberland County Sheriff’s Office.
