Stolen cars, pursuits, arrests

Two pursuits, two arrests Tuesday.


Just after 1:30 am, a speeding vehicle was southbound on US 31 and failed to yield for an officer attempting to make a traffic stop. The driver fled from authorities before running over stop sticks at the Indiana State Highway Garage, near CR 50N and Meridian Road.  The vehicle was stolen from Kalamazoo, Michigan.


Four people ran from the scene into a cornfield.  A juvenile male was caught and released to his parents.


In another incident a short time later a suspect vehicle nearly collided with two police vehicles while trying to flee an attempted traffic stop.  The pursuit proceeded southbound on U.S. 31 from Fulton into Miami County at speeds over 100 mph.  The suspect vehicle drove thru deployed stop sticks into Cass County.  The suspect finally lost control and was stopped following more stop sticks helping to end the pursuit.


Ebony Williams, 19, of Benton Harbor, Michigan, was taken to Woodlawn Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.  He was initially charged with auto theft, resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, reckless driving, operating a vehicle while never licensed, possession of marijuana and false identity statement.
