LANCASTER — UPDATE (October 18): A Lancaster man was arrested after police served a warrant last month.

Police arrested Christopher Garcia-Rodriguez, 19, after serving a warrant on Wednesday, September 18.

He was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Mary M. Sponaugle who set bail at $2,000.00 unsecured.

He was released pending his preliminary hearing.

PREVIOUSLY: A 19-year-old Lancaster man has been charged after police say he fled from a traffic stop earlier this month in Lancaster Township.

Christoper Garcia-Rodriguez is charged with fleeing or attempting to elude police in the Sept. 8 incident, according to Manheim Township Police.

According to police, an officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Garcia-Rodriguez at about 1:39 p.m. at the intersection of Wabank Road and Judie Lane, because the officer knew Garcia-Rodriguez’s driver’s license was suspended.

Garcia-Rodriguez fled, committing a series of traffic infractions, police say. The officer did not attempt to pursue him.

Police say Garcia-Rodriguez remains a wanted person at this time. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Manheim Township Police at (717) 569-6401.
