NEW CASTLE, PA – Joseph Lincoln Larry, 31-years-old, formerly of Detroit, moved his address to Union Township in Pennsylvania but he also moved his criminal past with him.
Joseph Larry is in the Lawrence County jail after leading police on a chase Sunday that ended when the vehicle that he was driving, namely his current girlfriend’s car, caught fire after a crash.
This was not the first time that New Castle Police had chased Joseph Larry while he was behind the wheel of a vehicle. In 2016 he lead police on a chase when he was on Detroit’s Most Wanted list. At that time he was wanted in Detroit for attempted homicide and welfare fraud.
Based on records from the Michigan Department of Correction, Larry was released from prison on January 2nd, 2020 and was due to finish his probation in less than 45 days on January 2nd, 2021. He has a laundry list of previous felony convictions that he has spent time in prison for.
After his arrest on Sunday police in New Castle found out that he was wanted for a parole violation in Detroit and had another outstanding warrant in Pennsylvania.
Joseph Larry now has additional charges that he will answer to the courts for. Those are two counts each of fleeing police and driving while under the influence, one count each of recklessly endangering another person, reckless driving, careless driving and driving without a license, and multiple traffic violations including eight stop sign violations. He was arraigned Sunday by District Judge Richard Russo, who set his jail bond at $300,000.
All of this began around 1 a.m. Sunday when a New Castle City Police Officer tried to pull him over for a non-working tail light.
