Foot chase leads Police to mow down bigger crimes
Police received a call about a man in a white shirt and blue jeans trying to steal a trailer at Davis St. Retirement apartments. Police stopped a vehicle as it was attempting to leave the area and a man in the back seat fit the description. When Bryan Heath was asked to step out of the vehicle the officer spotted a light bulb fashioned into a meth pipe and Bryan took off running into a wooded area. While chasing Heath and the officer ran passed a X-Mark zero turn ridding lawnmower setting in the woods. With the assistance of a taser Heath was captured. During the arrest police found in Heaths possession a key that said X-Mark on it. Sure enough the key fit the stolen mower in the woods. Bryan Heath was arrested charged with Knowingly Concealing Stolen Property, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting arrested, and grand larceny. His bail bond was set at $5,000.00. As he told the court he is currently jobless and homeless it is not likely he will make that bail bond.
