Police are looking for the Lebanon man they say lead them on a chase, then jumped out of his still moving car, leaving his passengers behind as the car smashed into a tree. South Lebanon Township police say they attempted to stop a speeding vehicle around 3:40am on October 2nd  on the 1600 block of King Street. The driver of that car, since identified as Eric Sean Robertson, 22, of 206 North 8th Street in Lebanon, sped up and turned off King Street. Robertson then slowed down and jumped out of the moving car. The car stopped when it struck a tree. Robertson managed to get away, but police say he dropped a bag that contained drug paraphernalia.

Two passengers in the car were not injured and police say they are not being charged with anything.

Robertson is wanted on a slew of charges, including fleeing or eluding police, recklessly endangering, possession of drug paraphernalia, maximum speed limit violation and driving on a suspended license. Anyone who knows Robertson’s whereabouts is asked to contact South Lebanon Police at 717-274-0481.
