State Police are trying to locate a Schuylkill Haven man who fled on foot following a lengthy car chase on Wednesday morning.
According to information released by the Frackville barracks, 28-year-old Charles Stan Brilla escaped a police attempt to stop him at 11:30 a.m. in Ashland for a vehicle registration violation. Brilla never stopped his 2002 Subaru sedan and led police on a 10-mile chase through Schuylkill County.
Police say, during the chase, Brilla “drove recklessly through an active work zone” and put several construction workers in danger.
Information currently available doesn’t mention the specific areas where Brilla traveled but do mention that State Police out of the Schuylkill Haven barracks helped end the vehicle chase portion of this incident by deploying stop sticks.
Those stop sticks deflated two tires on Brilla’s vehicle but he continued to drive for another half-mile. He then left the road, finding a dirt trail. Once on that unknown dirt trail, Brilla’s Subaru quit on him so he got out and fled on foot “through the woods,” police say.
Two passengers inside Brilla’s vehicle were taken into custody. Police searched the woods for Brill but came up empty so far. They say Brilla’s got numerous arrest warrants active on file.
They’re asking for the public’s help in finding Brilla. If you’ve seen him or know where he is, call PSP-Frackville at 570-874-5300.
This is the second reported car chase in Schuylkill County this week. [SEE: Pottsville Man Leads Police on High-Speed Chase (And That’s Only Part of the Story)]
