Suspect from chase arraigned
Bradley Everett Johnson was arraigned on three charges Tuesday, after a police chase that lead through two counties ended with his arrest Monday.

Johnson was charged with fleeing and eluding police, cocaine possession and a Friend of the Court warrant. He posted 10 percent of his $2,500 bond and was released from the Washtenaw County Jail.

The original incident occurred at approximately 2:40 a.m. Monday, when Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies pursued a vehicle they attempted to stop on Geddes Road, near Leforge Road, in Superior Township.

The driver, later determined to be Johnson, failed to pull over for police when signaled to, and fled in his vehicle.

The pursuit left Washtenaw County, and continued east into Wayne County. Canton police, Plymouth Township police, Livonia police, and Michigan State Police all assisted in the pursuit.

Johnson finally came to a stop at I-96 and Echols.

Johnson’s pretrial for fleeing is scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday. The pretrial for the drug charge is scheduled for the same time on March 4.

Retail Fraud
At approximately 5:40 a.m. Tuesday, Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 2200 block of Ellsworth Road in Ypsilanti Township for a retail fraud.

It was discovered the suspect walked in the store, went behind the counter and took several packs of cigarettes. When confronted by the cashier, the suspect left the store.

The suspect is described as a 6-foot-tall black male in his mid 20’s wearing a black jacket and blue jeans. The suspect left the store and got into the passenger side of a white, late model Plymouth Acclaim.

The case is under investigation.

Burglary
Deputies were dispatched for a burglary at approximately 2:30 a.m. today at the 500 block of Woburn in Ypsilanti Township.

The rear door was kicked in, and the kitchen window busted during the past two hours. Two plasma TV’s were taken from the residence. Suspects are unknown at this time.
