Holmes county sheriff department was led on a wildgoose chase a few days ago when a local mans crime spree took a violent turn!
The suspect (whose original reason for fleeing was not stated) first encountered and injured a man in his home with a hammer while trying to steal his car. Upon this initial failure he attempted to break into a second home, and steal a mail delivery vehicle before he entered a school.
While in bethlehem school he was held at gun point by an armed school worker. At this point he was also being chased by a passing cop who witnessed him while he was breaking into the second home. After a brief hold up he escaped onto a school bus and went on a terrifying ride down BOTH sides of the road.
Just out side of town the cops shot the tires of the stolen school bus and was able to apprehend the suspect soon after he crashed into the woods.
This is a crazy story full of misfortune. I can’t believe how unfortunate the school and all of this bad mans victims were. I hope no one is too hurt and the school is able to recover in time.
