Seneca Falls police say the man who was arrested late-Monday following a theft investigation and brief chase was arrested again on Tuesday.

Less than 24 hours after the original arrest, from which John Pisano, 37, of Seneca Falls was released, he was again taken into custody for aggravated unlicensed operation and other traffic violations.

The arrest stems from an incident where Pisano drove the vehicle in question to the Seneca Falls Police Department to acquire information from his arrest last night.

He was issued traffic tickets and will appear in local court at a later date.

Pisano attempted to flee on foot after the police stopped the truck on Bridge Street in Seneca Falls. He was wearing a ski mask when he exited the vehicle and led officers on a chase through residential areas and woods before being apprehended.

The Seneca Falls Police Department charged Pisano with aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, obstructing governmental administration, and resisting arrest. He was released on an appearance ticket.

Multiple law enforcement agencies, including the Village of Waterloo Police, the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, and the New York State Police, assisted in the arrest. The theft is still under investigation by the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office.
