February 13, 1997|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

County police interrupted a burglary at an Arnold home Tuesday, chased one man through nearby woods and arrested him, then caught up with two others in a car seen leaving the scene.

Domonic Boston, 29, of the 200 block of Open View Lane; Gregory Thomas, 23, of the 1800 block of Bowman Drive; and Todd Baden, 30, of the 1800 block of Schooner Court were charged with first-degree burglary.

Boston also was charged with theft and resisting arrest, and Thomas and Baden with fourth-degree burglary.

Residents of the 1100 block of Gator Court called police about 2 p.m. to report a burglary at a neighbor's house. When Officer Eric Snair arrived, he saw that the rear sliding glass door was broken. A man holding a watch and a pair of roller blades was coming out of the door, police said.

Snair drew his gun and ordered the man to the ground, police said. The man complied, then jumped up and ran into the woods as soon as Snair holstered his gun, police said. Snair chased him and found him hiding in the back of a covered pickup truck in the 500 block of Greenblades Court.

About the same time, neighbors told other officers they had seen two men get into a blue 1995 Mitsubishi Mirage in front of the house and speed off, police said.

The neighbors gave police a license number, and Sgt. Greg Eschleman saw the car on College Parkway a few minutes later, waiting to turn onto Ritchie Highway.

An off-duty officer driving south on Ritchie followed the car to U.S. 50 where Eschleman, who was in a patrol car, stopped it near Bestgate Road, police said. The two occupants were arrested.
