EMMETT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) - Two young men were arrested after allegedly stealing a vehicle and then fuel at a gas station, trying to steal another vehicle, and then leading police on a chase.
Calhoun County sheriff's deputies responded around 2:50 a.m. to a report of someone stealing gas in the 9000 block of Old U.S. 27 in Fredonia Township.
Deputies arrived at the scene but the suspect had already fled. Deputies were given a name of the suspect and a vehicle description -- a red, 1994 Ford pickup truck, which police later learned was stolen from an unknown property in the 13000 block of A Drive North.
Then around 3:23 a.m., a deputy was patrolling the Squaw Creek neighborhood near A Drive North and Heather Drive in Marshall Township and noticed dome lights on inside two vehicles parked in a driveway.
The deputy noticed a young man trying to break into a vehicle, according to a news release. The deputy was able to arrest the 19-year-old from Marshall. He now faces charges of larceny from a motor vehicle, larceny from a building and trespassing.
The deputy then saw the stolen pickup truck leaving the neighborhood. Other deputies tried to stop the suspect but a chase ensued.
The pursuit continued along westbound Michigan Avenue, between 11 Mile Road and 12 Mile Road in Emmett Township. The suspect then twice rammed his vehicle into a deputy's vehicle, police said. The suspect vehicle ended up in a ditch in front of the nearby FireKeeper's Casino.
This suspect, a 19-year-old Marshall man, got out of the truck and a scuffle ensued with Sgt. Brent Lincoln who was able to make an arrest. Sgt. Lincoln told 24 Hour News 8 he was not hurt in the incident. This suspect faces charges of fleeing and eluding, unlawfully driving away an automobile, felonious assault with a motor vehicle, and resisting and obstructing police.
