Posted

Middletown police charged a borough woman after a man who had escaped from Dauphin County Prison was located in her residence April 10.

The inmate, Tevin Brown, was on a work detail in front of the prison in Swatara Township when he walked away on Tuesday afternoon, April 9.

Shortly before 5 p.m. April 10, Middletown police received an anonymous tip that Brown was in the area of the 300 block of Lawrence Street.

Borough police were dispatched to the area, along with police from Penn State Harrisburg, Lower Swatara Township and Steelton, according to arrest papers Middletown police filed with District Judge David Judy.

Upon arriving at the residence of Haley Sharon Powers, 25, Powers opened the door and Brown, who was upstairs, was taken into custody.

Police said that Powers knew Brown was wanted for escaping, and that she had not contacted police or any law enforcement entity.

A search by police of Powers’ residence led to police finding marijuana and drug paraphernalia, police said.

Powers was arraigned before night court District Judge Steven M. Semic and charged with hindering apprehension/prosecution-harbor or conceal, possession of marijuana, and use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bail was set at $5,000, and her preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 22.

Traffic stop leads to drug charges

Middletown police arrested a Steelton man on drug charges after police followed him out of the borough and pulled him over in the Sheetz parking lot on Route 230 in Lower Swatara Township on April 9.

An officer on patrol followed Kevin Ryan Caraballo, 26, of the 700 block of South Second Street, at 3:09 a.m. as Caraballo was driving in the area of West Main and Ann streets in Middletown, according to arrest papers police filed with District Judge David Judy.

Police obtained consent to search the vehicle. Among the items found was a clear baggie of a white substance believed to be cocaine, two clear baggies of marijuana, two digital scales one containing marijuana residue and the other white powdery residue, and two cellphones.

Caraballo was arraigned April 9 before Judy and charged with manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver; and use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was released after posting $10,000 bail in surety bonds through a bondsman. His preliminary hearing is set for April 22.

Dispute in checkout line

Middletown police have charged a Londonderry Township man after he allegedly threatened to shoot a woman over a dispute while in the checkout line of the Giant on East Main Street shortly after 10 a.m. April 8.

According to arrest papers police filed with District Judge David Judy, Gary Lynn Goodling, 59, of the 100 block of North Geyers Church Road, threatened the woman after some of the food items she was planning to buy fell over the divider onto his.

Goodling was arraigned before Judy and charged with making terroristic threats, disorderly conduct, and harassment. His bail was set at $10,000.

Goodling is scheduled for an April 22 preliminary hearing.
