55 minutes through the detours from CVS to Walmart.  Liberty to Maple to Shaffer around lowes. One good thing. Hardly anyone in Walmart. By the time we got out the road was open.

It shows how one idiot can tie up the traffic of the whole city and Township in that part of the area..   They need another I80 exit behind the industrial park. That would help flow.

Wanted Erie man charged for allegedly fleeing police in Winslow Township


REYNOLDSVILLE — An Erie man wanted for attempted homicide charges was found to be living in Winslow Township, and is facing felony charges for fleeing police, according to court documents.

Pennsylvania State Police in DuBois filed charges against Michael David Myers, 37, of Erie, on Jan. 7 including one felony charge of flight to avoid apprehension/trial/punishment, and one misdemeanor charge for use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, state police gathered information on the whereabouts of Myers, who was wanted in Erie County for attempted homicide charges. Police found that Myers was staying at a residence in Winslow Township with another wanted individual.

The owner of the home was allegedly allowing them to visit. On Dec. 12, police went to the residence in an attempt to contact Myers.


The house was searched for Myers, but a person inside allegedly said he fled from the house through a door in the basement.

There is a large barn by the home that police then searched for Myers. He was allegedly found hiding in the basement of the barn under insulation.

While taking him into custody, police also allegedly found drug paraphernalia in his possession.

Myers has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Feb. 25 with Magisterial Judge David Inzana.

Sandy Township, PA – Route 255, from its intersection with Division Street all the way to The Commons Plaza in DuBois, was shut down for about two hours on Friday after a high-speed chase caused a crash.

It started around 11:30 Friday morning when State Police in DuBois saw a gold GMC Envoy pulling a U-Haul trailer going 78 mph in a 70 mph zone on Interstate 80.

Police attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver, Michael David Myers from DuBois, fled at a high rate of speed and used exit 101 to come into the DuBois area.

The vehicle sped down Route 255 toward DuBois, then turned onto Midway Drive and fled through the Lowe’s parking lot, then back onto Route 255.

Myers struck a curb and lost the U-Haul trailer.

He then lost control at the intersection with Industrial Drive, striking a minivan with two adults and three children.

Myers was then captured and taken into custody.

Police do not specifically say in the police report why Myers might have fled instead of pulling over, but DUI is listed under the “nature of incident” segment of the report.

No injuries were reported by anyone involved.

Two People Facing Charges After Drugs, Paraphernalia Found in Hotel Room in Brookville

April 7, 2021 12:33 am·
Author: Aly Delp

drug-herion-needle-stock.jpgBROOKVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – Two individuals are facing multiple charges related to drugs and paraphernalia found in a hotel room in Brookville.


Court documents indicate the Brookville Borough Police Department filed criminal charges against 44-year-old Tanya Witherite, of Erie, and 37-year-old Michael D. Myers, who is listed as transient.

According to a criminal complaint, on February 22, Brookville Borough Police initiated an investigation into drug activity at the Super 9 Motel on Allegheny Boulevard in Brookville Borough, Jefferson County.

According to the complaint, around 2:00 a.m. on February 21, Tanya Witherite and Michael D. Myers were involved in a pursuit with Pennsylvania State Police, troopers and were caught and taken to a hospital for treatment following the crash that ended the pursuit. Police then learned that Witherite and Myers were staying at the Super 9 Motel.

Brookville Borough Police were dispatched to the Super 8 Motel around 1:44 p.m. on February 21 for a report of controlled substances found inside a room, the complaint notes.

Police then met with a manager at the business who reported the room had been rented by Tanya Witherite and a man who used his credit card to pay for it and provided police with a copy of the room reservation sheet that Witherite had signed.

According to the complaint, Witherite had contacted the hotel, reported that she had been in an accident, and asked that her property inside the room be packaged up with the intent of a family member picking it up.

The employees then took police to the hotel room in question.

The complaint notes that as Witherite had asked a third party to enter the hotel room to pack her things, she gave up her expectation of privacy from law enforcement.

In the room, police observed numerous hypodermic syringes without caps, and a drawer that was open had white, wax baggies, often called stamp bags, with Q-tips and syringes with blood on them, as commonly used for injection of controlled substances, the complaint indicates.

The complaint states that the large number of unused and wrapped stamp baggies is considered evidence of the trafficking of controlled substances, namely heroin and/or fentanyl.

According to the complaint, police also found a bag containing approximately one-half gram of methamphetamine.

The following charges were filed against Witherite and Myers through Magisterial District Judge Gregory M Bazylak’s office on March 30:

– Possession of Firearm Prohibited, Felony 2
– Possess Firearm With Manufacturer Number Altered, Etc., Felony 2
– Receiving Stolen Property, Felony 2
– Receiving Stolen Property, Felony 3
– Manufacture, Delivery, or Possession With Intent to Manufacture or Deliver, Misdemeanor
– Possession of Controlled Substance, Misdemeanor (three counts)
– Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Misdemeanor (four counts)
– Receiving Stolen Property, Misdemeanor 3

Preliminary hearings are scheduled for 11:00 a.m. on May 13, with Judge Bazylak presiding.

Court documents indicate Myers was held for court on February 25, on third-degree felony flight to avoid apprehension and misdemeanor use/possession of drug paraphernalia charges in relation to an incident in Winslow Township on December 12, 2020. That case is continuing to make its way through the common pleas court system.

Myers is also facing a preliminary hearing in Clearfield County at 9:45 a.m. on May 7, on Fleeing, Receiving Stolen Property, DUI, Reckless Endangerment, and related charges from an incident on February 26, in Sandy Township.
