CLEARFIELD – District Attorney William A. Shaw Jr. has announced Clearfield County’s Fugitive of the Week.
Shaw identified the fugitive as Raymond Marche, 40, of Boggy Run Road, Brockport. Marche is wanted for failure to appear at Sentencing Court on Dec. 7.
On March 23 Officer Lance Thompson of the Dubois City Police Department filed a criminal complaint against Marche. He charged him with driving under the influence of alcohol, M1; driving while operating privileges suspended – DUI-related, S; and careless driving, S.
According to the affidavit of probable cause, on Feb. 20 Thompson was dispatched to a vehicle accident at the parking lot of a local hospital. Upon arrival he made contact with an individual who reported that he was legally parked when the operator of another vehicle struck his.
At that time, Thompson made contact with the operator of the other vehicle, who was later identified as Marche. While speaking with Marche, he was allegedly able to detect signs of impairment. Marche was then transported to the Dubois Penn Highlands Hospital where he refused chemical testing.
A preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 8, at which time all charges were held to court. On Dec. 7 Marche failed to appear at Sentencing Court, and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
