Chesterhill Borough, PA – Three men, including the man who had allegedly housed a fugitive and was involved in creating a homemade bomb, led police on a car chase early this morning through Chesterhill Borough in Clearfield County.
Police were able to pull over the vehicle at just before 1 a.m. Thursday morning along Laura Street and Walton Street.
The driver, 22-year-old Jake Schneider of Munson, was charged in March with housing a fugitive, 23-year-old Johnathan Harvey. The two of them also faced drug charges and charges for creating a pipe bomb.
While searching the home in March, police found several vacuum-sealed pouches of suspected synthetic marijuana or K2. Other drugs and drug paraphernalia were found at the scene.
They also reportedly found items that are generally used to make homemade pipe bombs, including gun powder, wire, caps and the end of a pipe. At the bottom of a bag, they found an active pipe bomb, which was later defused.
In the latest turn of events, Schneider was placed in the Clearfield County Jail on the charge of fleeing and eluding police and multiple traffic violations for the police chase early Thursday morning.
Two passengers are also in the Clearfield County Jail.
19-year-old Brandon Wilkinson of Hawk Run was arrested and lodged in the jail on multiple outstanding warrants and providing false identification to police.
22-year-old Kyle Meyers of Coburn was also arrested on outstanding warrants.
