On February 12, 2018 SCPD responded with Liberty Fire Company to the intersection of North Cedar and South Church St near the Highview Garden Apartments.
A trash truck was fully involved in fire .
Liberty Fire quickly attacked the fire and extinguished the fire .
Approximately an hour later , when tow truck operators attempted to remove the vehicle, there was a re-kindle and the Liberty firemen immediately responded to the call again quickly containing the fire.
Nowithstanding the certain perils associated with this incident the driver of a silver Kia drove through the fire scene through the signals of fire personnel attempting to contain the fire and control the traffic at the scene.
The vehicle was stopped by SCPD at Poplar and S. Church St.
Through investigation into this matter , the driver who was identified as Darnell Charles Hines was found in Possession of a large amount of prepackaged marijuana, a measuring scale and items for processing marijuana to sell. The subject was found in possession of a large amount of cash as well. The estimated street value of the confiscated marijuana was approximately $900-1000.
The subject was arrested and remanded to Chester County Prison in lieu of bail.
I ask all motorists ,
When you see a fire scene, tow scene, police scene, MOVE OVER.
The job these responders perform is dangerous enough without having to worry about being struck by a vehicle.
Special thanks to Chief Trego and his team.
All identified persons are presumed innocent .
