HANOVER TWP. — Township police said they arrested Nathan Wright, 27, of Nanticoke, after an incident on Lee Park Avenue Monday night.

Police said Wright fled on foot after he learned of a warrant in Oregon. He was captured after a short foot chase, police said.

Police charged Wright with flight to avoid apprehension and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was arraigned by District Judge Brian Tupper in Kingston Township and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility for lack of $75,000 bail.
