Charges Filed Against Man Who Fled Police in Reynoldsville

REYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – Charges have been filed against a man who reportedly fled from police in Reynoldsville late last week.

Court documents indicate the Reynoldsville Police Department filed criminal charges against 25-year-old Bryce Floyde Marvin, of Anita, Pa.

According to a criminal complaint, around 11:40 a.m. on July 25, Chief Troy Bell, of the Reynoldsville Police Department, saw Bryce Marvin walking into a store in Reynoldsville. Chief Bell was aware that Marvin was wanted on warrants out of Clearfield County.

Chief Bell approached Marvin, asked him for identification, and told him about the warrants.

According to the complaint, Marvin immediately began walking away, then turned, ran through the store, and out the door. He then ran around the rear of the building, across Jackson Street, and behind a shed near another business.

Jefferson County Control then advised Chief Bell that a caller reported seeing Marvin run behind the shed, and Chief Bell contacted Pennsylvania State Police for assistance. While he was waiting, Marvin ran from the shed and down 5th Street, the complaint states.

Chief Bell pursued Marvin and caught up to him at the bridge on 5th Street. Marvin then jumped over the guard rail and off of the bridge, according to the complaint.

Chief Bell parked his vehicle and waited for the state police while Marvin hid under the bridge. The complaint notes that he did not pursue Marvin under the bridge because he had received reports that Marvin may be in possession a stolen firearm.

After state police troopers arrived at the scene, Chief Bell and two of the troopers went under the bridge and located Marvin. He was then taken into custody without further incident.

A search of the backpack Marvin was carrying found two small baggies of marijuana (four grams total) and two small baggies of THC concentrate (2.6 grams total). A search of the area where Marvin was located also found a gray scale and another bag containing 12 grams of marijuana that Marvin later admitted belonged to him, according to the complaint.

Marvin was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge David B. Inzana at 8:30 p.m. on July 25, on the following charges:

– Resist Arrest/Other Law Enforcement, Misdemeanor 2
– Disorder Conduct Hazardous/Physical Offense, Misdemeanor 3
– Possession Of Marijuana, Misdemeanor

Unable to post $15,000.00 (10$) monetary bail, he was lodged in the Jefferson County Jail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on August 7, with Judge Inzana presiding.
