MILFORD — A pursuit that began in Warsaw around 4:15 p.m. today, Monday, Sept. 25. ended at 406 Turkey Creek Drive, Milford less than 40 minutes later. The male suspect was taken into custody.
Details on the pursuit are not available. However, the pursuit went northbound out of Warsaw on SR 15, through Leesburg, going eastbound on CR 900N, before heading northbound on CR 100E. From there the pursuit went westbound on Mock Road and back northbound on Old SR 15 into Milford.
Officers were seen flying through downtown Milford, only to report they had lost sight of the motorcyclist in the area of Catherine Street.
It wasn’t long after that, police were notified the motorcycle was dumped on property on Ulrich Drive and the driver was getting into a white van, heading toward SR 15. The van reportedly drove around to 406 Turkey Creek Drive, where the suspect was found hiding in or near a shed behind the residence.
Police from Warsaw, Milford and the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s office converged onto the property where the suspect was arrested and placed in a waiting Warsaw Police Department squad car.
Officers then went over to 315 Ulrich Drive where the motorcycle was located and a wrecker service called to impound the bike.
Lutheran EMS was called to the Ulrich Drive location to check out the suspect who complained of shoulder pain and allegedly recently had shoulder surgery.
