A high-speed chase Monday afternoon ended without injury despite the route it took.
At approximately 4:10, a call was sent out over the police scanner for a burglary in progress. The subject, a black male described as being approximately 220 lbs, having a muscular build and wearing a T-shirt, jeans, and gloves, was found by the homeowner and fled the scene immediately afterwards.
Several law enforcement agencies responded to the call and a high-speed pursuit commenced. When the suspect entered Jamestown on S. Main Street, it is estimated that he was traveling at approximately 90 mph.
The suspect continued onto N. Main Street before turning onto W. 4th Street, where he attempted to navigate the entrance of the Ramada Hotel in an effort to elude police. At this point, the suspect struck a support pillar for the walkway above the entrance and damaged one of the wheels of the vehicle. A Sheriff's deputy pulled in to the exit of the hotel to prevent the suspect from fleeing and he was surrounded from the rear by members of the Jamestown Police Department, Lakewood-Busti Police Department, and Ellicott Police Department.
The suspect then attempted to escape on foot, running into the hotel, before being stopped by use of a taser. The man was removed from the premises by Alstar ambulance. Charges are pending and the investigation is continuing.
