Third suspect involved in police chase arrested.


WEARE TOWNSHIP — A third suspect involved in a police chase on North Oceana Drive Wednesday night, March 28, was arrested Friday morning for parole violation, March 30, according to Oceana County Sheriff Craig Mast.

The suspect, who is a 31-year-old Hart man, was turned in to the sheriff’s office at 9:20 a.m. by his parole officer, Mast said. The man, who is now lodged in the Oceana County Jail, was a passenger in the fleeing vehicle.

The two other suspects, a 22-year-old Hart man and a 37-year-old Hart man, were arrested following the incident Wednesday night.

A deputy initiated a traffic stop at approximately 9 p.m. when the 22-year-old driver fled, said Lt. Shane Hasty, and a short chase ensued. After crashing the vehicle, the suspects attempted to flee on foot. The deputy apprehended one of the suspects, and was assisted by a citizen in holding the 37-year-old man. A K9 track led to the driver, who was apprehended.

The third suspect fled the scene.

The 22-year-old is being charged with a felony of fleeing and eluding and a misdemeanor of operating while intoxicated. The 37-year-old faces a parole violation charge.
