Around 12:00pm, Monroe Central Dispatch learned that the Lucas County Sheriff Department and a Perrysburg Police unit were in pursuit of vehicle traveling northbound on I-75 at speeds exceeding 100mph. The suspects had allegedly stolen more than a $1,000 dollars worth of electronic equipment from a Perrysburg store. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office Uniformed Division then laid stop sticks on I-75 near the area of Laplaisance Road but the suspects' vehicle avoided the stop sticks and drove through the grass alongside the freeway. The suspect vehicle then proceeded into the Bolles Harbor area where it crashed into a sign and fence on Lighthouse Road. Both suspects exited the vehicle and fled on foot. One suspect was arrested and taken into custody without incident approximately one block away, the other suspect was later taken into custody hiding in a shed a short distance from the crash scene. Both suspects have been booked into the Monroe County Jail for charges of Possession of Stolen Property and Obstruction of Police and await extradition to Ohio on the original charges of Felony Theft and Fleeing and Eluding Police. The Sheriff's Aviation Unit (Raptor) and K-9 unit, along with the Michigan State Police and US Border Patrol assisted in the apprehension. The names of the men arrested have not been released.
