City man, 19, flees from police
COAL TOWNSHIP - A 19-year-old Shamokin man is in Northumberland County Prison holding cell this weekend after allegedly running from state troopers and local law enforcement, only to have been apprehended and found with various drug substances.
According to a police report filed by state Trooper Justin Rosboschil of the Stonington police barracks, Cody Zacchaeus Horne, of South Market Street, fled in his vehicle when Rosboschil attempted to stop him for multiple code violations at approximately 2:47 a.m. Sunday in the area of Route 61 and Hospital Drive.
As he sped through Coal Township, he allegedly committed multiple traffic violations, police said.
Horne then stopped his vehicle and attempted to flee on foot, police said.
When the teen was apprehended, he was allegedly found with marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine, police said.
Charges were filed by Rosboschil in the office of Magisterial District Judge John Gembic, Shamokin.
Reports of guns drawn and Horne being taken in by Tasers were not confirmed.
Coal Township Patrolman Terry Ketchem, Joshua Wynn and Jason Adams were involved in the incident.
A representative from the prison said late Sunday afternoon that Horne was being held in a holding cell until his arraignment can be processed.
No further information could be obtained Sunday.
