Deputies arrested three people today who are suspected of breaking into Mad River Twp. homes and stealing items.
A woman reported that three suspects were attempting to take items from around her residence around 1:30 a.m. The woman’s grandson got into a fight with the suspects, and they fled the scene, nearly striking her grandson, deputies said.
During the investigation, a uniformed patrol sergeant and an Ohio State Patrol spotted the suspects’ vehicle. While conducting a stop, one male fled and a foot chase ensued.
Multiple officers joined the pursuit and he was eventually located in dense underbrush in a wooded area near Innisfallen and Dayton-Springfield roads.
A large knife was found inside the vehicle. The knife and vehicle were seized as evidence, according to authorities.
The suspects are believed to have tried to break in to two residences on Wynn Road. Arrested and booked into Clark County Jail were Mark A. Carroll, 29, of Gallagher Street in Springfield; Chad D. Holcomb, 29, of Gallagher Street in Springfield and Jessica M. Walden, 25, of Dwight Road in Springfield.
Carroll was charged with two counts of breaking and entering and obstructing official business. Holcomb is charged with two counts of breaking and entering, felonious assault and driving under suspension. Walden is charged with complicity to breaking entering, carrying a concealed weapon and menacing.
The three will be arraigned in Clark County Municipal Court on Sept. 12.
