On October 5, 2015 at approximately 11:00 AM the Upper Allen Police learned that Tilden had stolen a vehicle in Lower Allen Township. Tilden was also known to have active arrest warrants for robbing two separate banks.
At approximately 12:30 PM Upper Allen Police observed a male, later identified as Tilden, driving the stolen vehicle past the PNC Bank branch located in the 100 block of Kim Acres Drive. Tilden fled from the police and a vehicle pursuit followed. During the vehicle pursuit, Tilden committed numerous traffic violations and endangered the public. At one point during the vehicle pursuit, Tilden struck another person’s vehicle with his vehicle, causing minor damage. Upper Allen Police continued to pursue Tilden and informed advance police agencies of his direction of travel. The pursuit was eventually ended when Tilden was taken into custody by the Pennsylvania State Police in York City.
Upper Allen Police obtained an arrest warrant charging Tilden with the above crimes. The warrant was served on Tilden on November 9, 2015 and he was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge Mark Martin. At the time of the arraignment Tilden waived his right to a preliminary hearing and all charges were bound over to the Court of Common Pleas.
