Jason Schoening

Clearfield County’s Fugitive of the Week for the week of April 16, 2018.

Shaw identified the Fugitive as Jason Schoening, age 34, of Circle Road., DuBois, Pennsylvania.

Shaw stated that Schoening is wanted for failure to appear at Criminal Call held on March 8, 2018, at which time a warrant was issued for his arrest.

On August 2, 2017, Officer David Tracy of the DuBois City Police Department filed a Criminal Complaint charging Schoening with: 1) Persons not to Possess Firearms, F2; 2) Carrying Firearm without a License, F3; 3) Prohibited Offensive Weapon, M1; 4) Possession of a Small Amount of Marijuana, M; 5) Use/Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, M; 6) Altered Documents and Plates, M1; and related vehicle code offenses.

An Affidavit of Probable Cause filed by Officer Tracy states that on July 28, 2017, Officers were dispatched for the report of suspicious persons. Upon arrival, a traffic stop was conducted on a vehicle driven by Schoening due to an expired registration as well as the inspection sticker did not belong to the vehicle. At that time, contact was made with the operator, identified as Schoening, who appeared to be extremely nervous. After determining that Schoening had a suspended license and his passenger had an active warrant, both individuals were removed from the vehicle. After exiting the vehicle, Schoening retrieved a pair of headphones from a backpack; however, he denied ownership of the backpack. A search of the backpack revealed a sawed off 12 gauge shotgun, suspected marijuana and paraphernalia. It was later related to Officer Tracy that Schoening was observed exiting a residence carrying the backpack over his shoulder. A criminal history check revealed that Shoening is ineligible to own or possess a firearm.

A Preliminary Hearing was held on August 11, 2017, at which time all charges were held to court. On March 8, 2018, Schoening failed to appear at Criminal Call and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
