Yesterday morning just after 8am, an officer from the Mifflin Co. Regional Police attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle that had been found to be speeding in a school zone in front of East Derry Elementary School, Derry Twp. The vehicle's operator was a 19-y/o McClure female who failed to yield to emergency lights and sirens and continued into the area of the Vo-Tech school where additional responding units from the Lewistown Police Department and the Mifflin County Detectives were staging to assist. A rolling roadblock was used to slow and then finally stop the involved vehicle at the intersection of Green Avenue Extended and Knepp Avenue. The operator was taken into custody without further incident and charges were filed through MDJ Gingrich's office.
