Vehicle stop leads to jail for driver
A vehicle stop in Monroe County led to the jailing of the driver on an outstanding warrant.
State police at Lehighton said John P. Emmons, 41, of Saylorsburg, was stopped about 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13, along Gilbert Rd., in Polk Township, for equipment violations. It was learned that a warrant had been issued for his arrest for failure to appear in Monroe County court in September 2009 for a drunk driving charge.
