In the execution of a warrant search, state police at the Schuylkill Haven barracks took two men into custody on June 21. Both were transported to the Schuylkill County Prison, Pottsville, to be arraigned on active warrants.
Police said the Troop L ProActive Criminal Enforcement Team received information that a known wanted suspect, Steven Lucas, 47, of Joliett, was living on Sweet Arrow Lane Road in Washington Township. Police said he was being sought for 11 felony and misdemeanor warrants from Schuylkill, Lebanon and Dauphin counties.
