COLON TOWNSHIP, MI (WTVB) - An 18-year-old Battle Creek man arrested last night says he has been involved in a number of vehicle thefts and break-ins. State Police from the Coldwater Post acted on a tip from Colon Township that a fugitive was in the area driving a stolen truck. A traffic stop was initiated, and after the fugitive failed to stop, a chase ensued through what troopers described as blizzard-like conditions, ending only when the driver ended up in a dead end behind a Calhoun County residence. He was taken into custody without incident. Among the charges for the unnamed man: fleeing and eluding, stolen vehicle, and felon in possession of a firearm. The suspect later admitted to troopers that he has stolen 3 other vehicles and has broken into over 10 storage units. The investigation continues; anyone with information is encouraged to call the Coldwater State Police Post at 278-2373 or CrimeStoppers at 800-342-STOP.
