Friday afternoon a South Bend man was arrested on several charges after leading police on a chase in Marshall County.
Around 2:50 p.m., Sgt. Ryan Lebo was in the area of US 30 and King Road when he saw a vehicle matching the description of a vehicle alleged to have been involved in an armed robbery of a business in Bourbon. When Lebo and a Marshall County deputy got behind the vehicle, a 2013 Chevrolet SUV, the vehicle fled north on King Road.
The Chevrolet turned eastbound in the area of Lake Of The Woods, eventually hitting stop sticks placed by Bremen Police Department, in the area of 3A Road and East Shore Drive, successfully deflating the front right tire of the Chevrolet. The disabled Chevrolet continued northbound on Plymouth Goshen Trail to SR 106, where it drove into a bean field.
The driver, identified as Tyler Davis, 29, of South Bend, attempted to flee on foot but was taken into custody. After being cleared at a local hospital Davis was taken to the Marshall County Jail on preliminary charges of armed robbery, possession of stolen property, and resisting law enforcement with a vehicle.
Further investigation revealed the Chevrolet was reported stolen out of Chicago. Troopers also located items in the Chevrolet suspected to be from the alleged robbery.
The Indiana State Police was assisted by the Marshal County Sheriff’s Department, Bourbon Police Department, and Bremen Police Department.
The Bourbon Police Department is investigating the alleged robbery of the business in Bourbon.
