A police pursuit took place yesterday evening resulting in the arrest of one man.
Ohio State Highway Patrol Post 84 began the chase in Washington County, then the Monroe County Sheriff’s office and OSHP St. Clairsville Post stepped in when the chase reached Fly, Ohio.
Sheriff Charles Black says Brian Wade was driving a vehicle stolen from West Virginia. Wade was arrested on State Route 7 just south of Long Ridge Road. He’s charged with felony fleeing and eluding, along with possession of meth and drug paraphernalia, and receiving stolen property.
Black also says Wade has warrants in Ohio and West Virginia. We’re told detectives are working to get a search warrant for the vehicle, as they believe there may be evidence concerning multiple burglaries within Monroe County and surrounding counties.
