On Friday, December 29, 2017 while on patrol, a Fairview Township Police Officer observed two suspicious vehicles at a business in the 600 block of Salem Road, Etters. One of the vehicles had it's headlights illuminated and there was an as yet unidentified person outside the vehicles. The officer recognized one of the vehicles as being connected to Todd Kriegsman who was a wanted person on felony charges out of Dauphin County.
As the officer approached, he positively identified Todd Kriegsman as being the subject present. The officer approached Kriegsman and began giving commands at gun point. Upon seeing police, Kriegsman jumped into his vehicle and began to flee. In doing so, he drove directly at the police officer who still had his gun drawn. The officer stopped advancing as it appeared Kriegsman intended to strike him with his vehicle. Kriegsman then swerved towards the right and around the officer. He was then able to elude two tractor trailers that were blocking most of Salem Road and proceeded onto I-83 north from the exit 35 on ramp. Police pursued Kriegsman at high speed for several miles. As Kriegsman entered Cumberland County, police decided to discontinue the pursuit out of concern for public safety and because the offender had been identified. Kriegsman was apprehended later that same day in Dauphin County.
Kriegsman was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Scott Gross and bail was set at $25,000 on just the York County charges. Kriegsman is currently incarcerated at the Dauphin County Prison in relation to charges in that county.
