SYRACUSE — A Syracuse man was recently arrested after allegedly fleeing from officers during a vehicle pursuit which reached speeds over 100 miles per hour.
Miles Robert Cole, 35, 10066 N. 400E, Syracuse, is charged with resisting law enforcement and possession of methamphetamine, both level 6 felonies; and possession of paraphernalia and reckless driving, both class C misdemeanors.
On May 14, a Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office deputy was en route to assist a Syracuse police officer when he noticed a vehicle traveling 70 mph in a 45 mph zone on SR 13. As the deputy attempted to pull the vehicle over, its driver continued speeding and fleeing from the officer. During the pursuit, the vehicle reached speeds over 100 mph.
According to court documents, the vehicle’s driver, later identified as Cole, lost control of the vehicle and crashed near SR 13 and CR 400E. Upon searching Cole’s person, the deputy found a digital scale with meth residue.
Cole was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on May 14, with a $5,250 surety and cash bond.
