Police searching for Lancaster County woman from car pursue that reached speeds of one hundred twenty mph

Police are still searching for a Denver woman who eluded them early Sunday morning during a vehicle pursuit that reached speeds of one hundred twenty mph.

Serena Ann Schmuck, of two hundred twenty nine Main St., Apt. 1, had not been taken into custody as of late Thursday morning, state police said.

Schmuck faces fifty three charges including fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, driving without lights to avoid identification or arrest, driving with a suspended or revoked license and speeding.

Her license was suspended as a result of a June two thousand fifteen DUI conviction after Schmuck led police on a similar high-speed police pursuit while on cocaine and with two passengers — including an 8-year-old child — in her vehicle, court records demonstrate. At that time, police noted she had six prior convictions of driving under suspension.

Schmuck, 31, was clocked on radar going one hundred eleven mph on northbound Route two hundred twenty two at Landis Valley Road in Manheim Township shortly before four a.m. Sunday, state police Cpl. Henry L. Callithen III said in a criminal complaint. She refused to stop the two thousand thirteen Chevrolet Sonic Turbo she was driving and reached a speed of one hundred twenty mph in a sixty five mph zone before exiting at Brownstown.

Schmuck led police on a high-speed pursuit on several West Earl Township roads, Callithen said. The 11-mile pursue lasted twelve minutes.

Schmuck turned off her headlights, crossed into the oncoming lane several times and straddled the center line, Callithen said. While turning from Main Street onto Stone Quarry Road in Brownstown, Schmuck veered into the opposite lane, forcing an oncoming vehicle to the shoulder to avoid being struck.

She drove seventy mph in a thirty five mph zone on Locust Street and almost lost control of the car at a curve, the complaint states. Callithen attempted a “precision immobilization mechanism” maneuver to stop Schmuck’s car on Route seven hundred seventy two near Stone Quarry Road but she slammed on her brakes to avoid a collision. She also all of a sudden braked on School Lane Road, almost causing Callithen to strike her from behind.

Callithen attempted to stop Schmuck’s car by pushing its left rear fender and bumper in a cul-de-sac on Millstone Drive, but she kept going. Callithen drove up next to the Sonic and got a “ideal view” of the operator, he said. Schmuck escaped because Callithen stopped to avoid striking a parked vehicle in the cul-de-sac.

West Earl Township police Officer Dale Ebersole joined the pursuit on Main Street in Brownstown but he and Callithen lost look of Schmuck after she turned off her headlights a 2nd time and traveled south on Route 272, the complaint states.

Police called off their pursuit. They determined Schmuck was driving her beau’s car, and Callithen used her driver’s license and Facebook photographs to positively identify her as the driver, the complaint states.

Police obtained a warrant for her arrest and ask anyone with information about her whereabouts to call them at 717-299-7650.
