    — Pennsylvania State Police were involved in a foot chase on Thursday afternoon in an attempt to serve a warrant.
    According to the report, at around 5:30 p.m., police went to a property on Pardon Road in Sterling Township to serve a felony warrant.
    While at the location, police learned that John Charles Ferrise, 34, was hiding in an RV on the property.
    Ferrise had active arrest warrants from the Scranton Police Department.
    According to the PSP, Ferrise fled into a heavily wooded area and failed to obey verbal commands.
    Two officers pursued Ferrise for approximately one mile.
    Once again, the officers said Ferrise refused to follow verbal commands. At that point, he was taken to the ground and placed under arrest.
    Ferrise was cited for resisting arrest and arraigned before Magistrate Bonnie Carney. Bail was set at $10,000 and Ferrise was taken to the Wayne County Correctional Facility.
    A court appearance is forthcoming.
     
    Liquor store theft
    State police arrested two people following an incident in late January at the Hamlin Wine and Spirits store.
    According to police, at around 11:30 a.m., were called to the store to a report of a retail theft.
    Store manager Michael Manley contacted police and told them about the incident. He provided Trooper Jamison Warner with video showing two females taking liquor from the store. He also provided police with a videotape which showed the registration of the vehicle.
    According to police, Sabrina Mari Cavezza, 23, Greentown, and Christina McKeeby, age and hometown not given, allegedly removed two bottles of alcohol from the store shelves and placed them in a large purse carried by McKeeby. They left the store without paying for the items.
    After an investigation, McKeeby and Cavezza were charged with retail theft through district court.
