The Troop D barracks of the Pennsylvania State Police released a poster Tuesday detailing the five most wanted people in the area.
Trooper Dan Kesten says this is a new initiative for the troop this year. They got the idea from another barracks, Troop A.
“We want to be proactive,” Kesten said. “We’re hoping someone in the public has some information.”
Kesten says ‘Five Most Wanted’ posters will be released periodically.
Officers stress they are not asking for assistance from the public in taking the wanted individuals into custody. They are simply asking for any information on the suspects’ whereabouts.
“We want information,” he said. “We definitely don’t want people taking any physical type of action. Make sure you are safe, and use common sense.”
If you have information, you’re asked to call the Troop D barracks- which is headquartered in Butler Township- at 724-284-8100.
Troop D covers the counties of Butler, Beaver, Lawrence, Mercer and Armstrong.
Of the five ‘most wanted’ people on Tuesday’s list, three are from Butler County.
31-year-old James Hutchinson III is wanted for a 2018 possession with intent to deliver in Butler County. His last known address was in the city of Butler.
23-year-old Cassady Eckelberger is wanted for a 2018 assault by vehicle while DUI in Mercer County. She was last seen in Butler County.
38-year-old Philip Campbell is wanted for a 2018 possession with intent to deliver in Butler County. His last known address was in Butler County.
Others on the list are 21-year-old Jeremiah Kloos of Mercer County. He’s wanted on an aggravated assault charge from last year in Mercer.
51-year-old Dwayne Hawk of Armstrong County is wanted on a rape charge last year out of Armstrong.
If you know the whereabouts of any of these people, you’re asked to call police.
