Chase leads to arrest

SHAMOKIN DAM — A Mount Carmel man has been arrested following a police chase that began at South Old Trail and East Mill Road at 10:58 p.m. July 15, state police at Selinsgrove announced Sunday.

Troopers said they attempted to pull over a vehicle for registration and equipment violations, but the driver refused to stop and instead fled at a high rate of speed. The pursuit continued into Union County, where it was stopped due to safety concerns.

The suspect vehicle then was found abandoned on Dietrich Road in West Buffalo Township, Union County. During the course of their investigation, state police said they discovered the driver had been Dakota Haines, 23, of Mifflinburg, and that there had been two passengers in the car — Jessica Camp, 19, of Millmont, and Zachary Carl, 23, of Mount Carmel.

“Carl has since been arrested for his involvement with this crime,” Trooper Michael Palange, the investigating officer, wrote in a news release. “Haines and Camp have not yet been apprehended.”

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact state police.
