A man charged with escaping a police station on June 11 waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Monday.

Kyle Golter, 20, of Shippensburg, had all charges waived for Cumberland County Court during a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge H. Anthony Adams.

Golter was charged with escape and criminal mischief in relation to the incident after Shippensburg Police say he escaped a holding cell at the station at 2:45 p.m. June 11.

According to police, Golter was being investigated for numerous incidents including burglary and vandalism.

He was being interviewed by police and was placed in a temporary holding cell until he could be taken to Cumberland County Prison, as he was on probation from an earlier charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and facing additional charges, police said.

That is when he managed to escape, according to police, who said that he got out of the holding cell and fled the station.

Golter was then found in a tent at 12:15 p.m. June 15 in a wooded area near Schreiber Foods on Dykeman Road in Shippensburg.

He was preliminary arraigned on June 15 in front of Judge Adams and held on $10,000 bail.

A formal arraignment has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 13.

According to court papers, Golter is represented by Public Defender Douglas Clifton.
