Pennsylvania Police Looking For Towanda Man

Pennsylvania State Police say they are looking for a Towanda man who fled from them back in late September.

According to police officials, a State Trooper attempted to stop the vehicle of 34-year-old Jonathan Butler on September 22nd for an expired vehicle registration.  They say that Butler failed to stop and a pursuit was initiated.

At the conclusion of the chase, Butler exited the vehicle and charged toward the Trooper with a cylinder with frost and vapors emanating from it.  It was later determined that the cylinder contained anhydrous ammonia, a chemical commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine.

Butler repeatedly threatened to throw the contents of the cylinder onto the Trooper.  The Trooper gave Butler space for his own safety and that’s when the man ran into a wooded area.  Police searched the area but where unable to locate the suspect.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Butler’s arrest.  He has been charged with Attempted Aggravated Assault on a Law Enforcement Officer, Terroristic Threats, and Fleeing or Attempting to Elude a Police Officer.

Anyone with information of the whereabouts of the suspect are asked to contact Pennsylvania State Police in Towanda.
