at a high rate of speed. She struck another vehicle near the
intersection of Roosevelt and Pennsylvania Avenues but continued to
flee, escaping the area.

of the traffic stop Edwards was wanted for a parole violation and
several prior traffic violations. She was subsequently charged with
aggravated assault, flight to avoid apprehension, and lesser offenses.

a hotel on the Harrisburg Pike in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Yesterday at
about 1 p.m., members of the fugitive task force arrested Edwards
without incident near the hotel. She was turned over to the York County
Sheriff’s Office Central Booking Unit for processing and arraignment.
United States Marshal Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service is the
nation’s primary fugitive investigative agency and arrested more than
84,000 wanted felons last year. We add Edward’s name to that list and by
doing so we make our communities safer.”
