Michael Evans-Turner

A Harrisburg man already in Dauphin County Prison on charges related to a Nov. 12 high-speed police chase is heading to court  in connection with a check cashing scheme in Middletown.

Michael A. Evans-Turner, 30, is accused of fleeing from officers in mid-November when they attempted to arrest him for his part in an illegal check cashing scheme.

Police say Evans-Turner and Gina D. Holmes, 22, of Harrisburg, worked together to steal nearly $4,00o from one of Holmes’ home health clients.
The investigation revealed that Homles, who was employed as a home health care worker, took checks from one of her clients in Middletown and then fraudulently made them out to Evans-Turner using a forged signature.
When officers attempted to apprehend Evans-Turner on Nov. 12 he fled from police in Holmes’ vehicle.
He was eventually captured in Harrisburg near Cameron and Sycamore Streets.
Evan-Turner is facing  numerous charges including felony charges of theft, three counts of forgery, flight to avoid apprehension and conspiracy.
Holmes is currently wanted by Middletown Police.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to contact police at 717-558-6900.
