Man arrested after short foot chase on Raleigh Street
A 20-year-old man with a warrant for his arrest was arrested after a short foot chase on Raleigh Street on Wednesday.
Police found him at a home on Raleigh Street, and when they arrived he ran out the front door in trying to get away.
He grabbed a backpack while being chased and as he jumped off the front porch he dropped it. After the foot chase he was arrested for the warrant. Police returned to the area and picked up the backpack.
There was a significant amount of change in the backpack. Police said a break and enter took place on January 16 at a residence on Bedford Street, however they did not say what was stolen, presumably it was loose change.
The man is facing charges of breach of probation, possession of methamphetamine and possession of stolen property. He was held for a bail hearing.
