Wanted Man Apprehended in Jefferson County

REYNOLDSVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – Police in Reynoldsville recently took a man wanted on a warrant in Clearfield County into custody.

Court documents indicate the Reynoldsville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 29-year-old James Lawrence Uhl, of Brockport.

According to a criminal complaint, on March 27, Sgt. Murray of the Reynoldsville Police Department received a phone call from a Parole Officer stating he was driving on 10th Street and saw who he thought to be James Uhl who was wanted on a warrant in Clearfield County.

Chief Bell and Sgt. Murray then responded to the area and saw Lingenfelter on Willow Alley with a male and a female.

The officers approached Uhl and asked for his identification. According to the complaint, Uhl said he did not have it with him.

When Chief Bell asked for his name, he replied “David Uhl.” Sgt. Murray knew this was incorrect because she had contact David Uhl previously. Sgt. Murray then stated she knew he was not who he said he was and restrained him while Chief Bell placed him in handcuffs.

Uhl was then searched and a foil pipe was discovered in his pocket. Uhl admitted he used it to smoke marijuana.

Based on the investigation, the following charges were filed on Friday, April 5:

– False Identification to Law Enforcement Officer, Misdemeanor 3
– Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor
