Camillus police make arrest after pursuit involving box truck

  • Staff Report 

Camillus Police have arrested a 23-year-old man following a domestic investigation and a stolen vehicle incident. The incident began when officers responded to a domestic call on Myron Road, and the victim reported that her son had left the scene. As officers spoke with the victim, they received a call about a stolen 2003 white-colored box truck in the area.

Sheriff’s Deputies were able to locate the stolen vehicle and attempted to pull it over. However, the driver allegedly refused to stop and led officers on a pursuit through the Town of Geddes and Solvay before returning to Camillus.

During the pursuit, the stolen vehicle hit one of the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicles and drove away. Camillus police were able to deploy stop sticks, which deflated the two front tires of the vehicle. Despite the damaged tires, the vehicle continued on, eventually striking a parked car and coming to a stop in a shallow creek.

The suspect has been charged with grand larceny in the third degree, CPCS in the seventh degree, criminal mischief in the fourth degree, reckless endangerment in the second degree, resisting arrest, unlawful fleeing in the third degree, reckless driving, and AUO in the second degree.

The Camillus Police Department is continuing its investigation into the incident, and more charges may be forthcoming.
