MENDON TOWNSHIP – A police chase ended with the arrest of a 29 year old Three Rivers man.

St. Joseph County Sheriff Mark Lillywhite says just before 7:30 Wednesday night a deputy attempted to stop a vehicle on Silver Street near Wakeman Road in Mendon Township for an equipment violation. The driver fled the scene as the deputy was walking up to the vehicle.

Deputies pursued the suspect vehicle east on Wakeman Road to Angevine Road where the suspect drove into a corn field. Officers surrounded the field and found the suspect trying to get rid of some narcotics.

The driver was taken into custody and lodged in the St. Joseph County Jail on an outstanding warrant. Additional charges are being requested for fleeing and eluding, resisting and obstructing an officer and for narcotics violations.
