From the Wareham Police:
On Wednesday, February 12th, at about 10:45 p.m., Officer James White, while on routine patrol observed a vehicle exiting the parking lot of Gold World on Cranberry Highway. The vehicle was towing a trailer that was dragging a ramp, causing it to send sparks on the roadway. Officer White attempted to stop the vehicle; however the operator refused to stop.
The vehicle, a pick-up truck, turned onto Sand Pond Road and began to accelerate. The truck then rammed the gate belonging to the Onset Water Department, and struck a fire hydrant disabling the vehicle. The operator had already fled by the time Officer White reached it. Furthermore, it was determined that the vehicle had just been stolen from a nearby home. Under the direction of Sergeant Kevin Reilly, other Wareham police officers arrived as did Deputy Sheriff Scott Sawler and K-9 Colby. After several minutes of tracking, the suspect was found hiding in a pile of brush behind the Star Light Motel. The suspect resisted arrest and was bitten before being taken into custody. As the suspect was being led from the woods he attempted to escape by pulling away from the officers and resisted being placed into the cruiser. It was also determined the suspect had multiple warrants for his arrest.
Noah Pond (46), of Brewster, is charged as follows:
1. Larceny of a motor vehicle, subsequent offense.
2. Failure to stop for the police.
3. Leaving the scene of a property damage accident.
4. Operating with a suspended license, subsequent offense.
5. Reckless operation of a motor vehicle.
6. Resisting arrest.
7. Straight warrant.
8. Straight warrant.
9. Default warrant.
Acting Chief John Walcek said, “Thanks to the keen eye of Officer White, and the assistance from back-up officers, a dangerous fugitive was arrested. We are very appreciative of the close working relationship with Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department and their K-9 teams.”
