Case

Just after 2 a.m. on July 20th 2019, Steelton Borough Police requested assistance with the traffic stop of a suspicious vehicle that they had followed out of the Borough and into Swatara Township. A Swatara Township Officer responded to assist and an attempt was made to conduct a traffic stop in the 4100 block of Chambers Hill Road, but the vehicle fled. Both Officers discontinued their efforts to stop the vehicle soon thereafter. While continuing to check the area, the Swatara Township Officer located the vehicle crashed on the side of the road in the 7100 block of Chambers Hill Road. The driver had left the scene of the crash on foot. Further investigation revealed that the vehicle involved had just been stolen hours before (but had not yet been reported as such). An extensive search of the area for the driver was negative. Anyone with information relative to this incident should contact the Swatara Township Police at 717-564-2550 or submit a tip at SwataraPolice.org. You may remain anonymous if you so desire.
