Wanted man dives in lake
Pocono Mountain Regional Police are seeking Robert Waters, 19, of Bangor, who police said they tried to take into custody on July 27 at 4:42 a.m., when the man jumped into a lake and avoided apprehension.
Police said they responded to a fight reported to have been taking place along Deerfield Drive in Mount Pocono and upon arrival found Waters at the property. Police observed a marijuana pipe and several small baggies lying on the floor of Waters' vehicle.
Upon trying to take the man into custody, he fled on foot and dove into the lake in escaping. Police said they failed to locate Waters in a two-hour search that followed.
A warrant has been issued for Waters, who is charged with escape and possession of a controlled substance.
