    Police are scouring the Schuylkill after a man they were chasing from 30th Street Station jumped of the Market Street Bridge and into the icy cold water to escape.

    The suspect, according to public affairs, dropped a bag in the station. The bag contained drugs and a firearm, authorities said.

    The suspect hasn't resurfaced since jumping in the river.
