Notorious Schuylkill County Man On the Run from Pottsville PD

Does this name ring a bell?

Tamasso James Dino

A Cressona man whose name has graced the pages of Coal Region Canary in the past for all the wrong reasons is once again in trouble with the law.

Earlier this week, Pottsville Police said they’re looking for a man by the name of Tomasso James Dino. Dino is 23 and is last known to be living in Cressona. Police say Dino is wanted in connection with an investigation done at 306 W. Market St. in Pottsville. Here’s a photo police released of Dino:

According to information released by Pottsville PD, the incident in question happened last Friday (April 12) at about 3:30 p.m. Police believe Dino threatened to kill a 36-year-old Pottsville man. The alleged victim says Dino flashed a gun at him during the fracas but fled the scene prior to police arriving.

Police went looking for Dino but were unable to find him. They also released this photo of him dripping:

Dino allegedly fled the scene wearing a dark-colored Adidas track suit carry a red backpack.

Police are asking for the public’s help in locating Dino. Anyone with information on him is being asked to call 570-628-3792.

If and when he’s caught, Dino faces a felony aggravated assault charge and other related offenses.

Rap Sheet

Dino’s name might sound familiar to Canary readers. He’s been featured on our pages several times in our short history. Our records show that Dino’s scrapes with the law aren’t new.

Back in March 2020, Port Carbon Police reported that they were called to an address in Palo Alto where they found Dino asleep on a porch. At the time, police say Dino had some meth, and meth accessories, as well as a set of brass knuckles.

Later that summer, in July, Dino appeared at a video hearing with District Judge David Plachko. During this hearing, Dino allegedly called a female witness at the judge’s office a “snitch” and he was awarded with a witness intimidation charge.
