VIDEO: Suspect in Jewelry Store Theft Smashes Cruiser Twice before Arrest

A man who was later identified as a suspect in at least one smash-and-grab theft from a jewelry store in Massillon crashed his truck into a Wayne County Sheriff’s Office sergeant’s cruiser twice before leading multiple agencies on a high-speed chase that ended with he crashed his truck into a ditch and had to be revived with Narcan before being taken to the hospital and eventually booked into jail.

At about 9:35 PM Monday, a sergeant was on patrol in Sugar Creek Township when he conducted a random registration check on a pick-up truck at a gas station, according to a Wayne County Sheriff’s Office report. The license plate was registered to a different vehicle, and the owner had a suspended license.

As the sergeant approached the vehicle, the vehicle sped off, circled around the gas pumps and rear-ended the sergeant’s cruiser, the report states. It then circled back around and smashed into the front of the cruiser… ABC News5
