Man Dies While Running from Police
A man is dead after apparently running away from police Sunday morning.
Hamilton Township Police and Morrow Police were called out to a home on Swigert Road around 5:00am for a report of someone taking items from the home.
When police got there a dark pickup truck took off from the scene and drove through a field and into a nearby wooded area. After a short chase the truck got stuck and the driver took off running.
Police searched the area looking for the man who had been driving the truck. The officers then heard a man yelling for help. When they got to where the screams were coming from they saw a man, who looked like the driver, in the middle of a pond struggling to stay above water.
The man in the pond went under the water and never came back up. Firefighters and water rescue crews were called to the pond. Around 10:45am crews were able to pull the body of the man from the water.
Police were able to locate what they believe are stolen items from the home in the truck that was driven by the man. His identity has not been released at this time.
The Warren County Sheriffs Office is investigating the incident.
