On July 30, 2021, at approximately 1:14 a.m., Troopers conducting a proactive patrol in the area of John J Williams Highway and Mount Joy Road observed a white male operating a green camouflage ATV on the public roadway. The troopers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the ATV on Mount Joy Road, but the male operator refused to stop, and continued onto John J Williams Highway. While fleeing from Troopers, McCarron made multiple traffic violations. McCarron was taken into custody by Troopers without incident after he crashed his ATV into private property on the 27000 block of Merchant Mann Drive. A search of McCarron’s person led to the discovery of a white crystal substance, which was tested, and found to be 2.03 grams of Methamphetamine. The search also revealed a concealed knife. A computer inquiry of McCarron revealed he had active warrants for operating an off-highway vehicle on public roadway.
