Centerville Burglary Suspect Arrested After High-Speed Chase
CENTERVILLE -- Police say they have arrested the man suspected in as many as 13 burglaries in the Centerville and Kettering area.
Police detectives say they were following Michael T. Hudgens, 28, to a Millbank Drive address, where he attempted a break-in.
"It's unreal because this neighborhood is usually quiet and we know everybody," said Tim Slonaker who has lived there about 10 years.
Police knew his car's description based off detailed descriptions from witnesses after he was a suspect in two different burglaries Tuesday morning. Police say Hudgens is the same man who fled from a Walford Drive home when a woman confronted him. And also the same man who fled after setting off a security system alarm nearby on Briggs Drive.
As police approached him, officers say, Hudgens fled in a vehicle. He was reportedly driving well above the speed limit when he crashed on Marshall Road near Rose Bower Avenue just a few miles away from the home.
"He just wouldn't stop for officers until he crashed into a telephone pole," said Ron Roberts of Kettering Police Department.
"Hit that pole knocked it down," said Don Cherry. "Hit it pretty hard. I happened to hear this bang, crash. I came out here saw a gentlemen laying on the ground."
And even then, he tried to run again. Police caught up with him after a brief foot chase.
"He has been committing several daytime burglaries forcing in front doors in the Kettering and Centerville areas so we wanted to get this guy off the street as soon as possible," said Roberts.
No one else was hurt in the pursuit.
Hudgens faces felony Fleeing and Eluding, and numerous other traffic violations. He sustained minor injuries from the crash, and was treated and released at a local hospital. The recent daytime burglaries in Kettering remain under investigation. Hudgens is currently being held in the Kettering Jail and does not have a bond.
