Elyria – An alert neighbor on Elyria’s northwest side help foil a break in at the Lowell Street Café Sunday night.

The resident called the Elyria Police after witnessing a man attempting to get into the closed business – they were able to provide Police Dispatchers with a clear description of the man and his vehicle. Police say nearby traffic spooked the suspect and he fled the scene but with the description they had from the witness a responding Officer spotted the suspect and attempted to pull him over.

The suspect fled and after a short chase he pulled into a driveway on Dewey Ave off Lake Ave and was taken into custody.

Police say that the suspect, Ricky Michaels of Elyria, has a lengthy record of theft, breaking and entering and passing bad checks.

Ironically, the driveway he pulled into on Dewey belongs to an employee of the Lowell Street Café.

i wonder if the suspect knew the employee. it seems a little odd that he would have chose that driveway. hmmmm, i would be questioning the employee as well. maybe the employee told the suspect where the cash was and how to get to it. just a thought.

At least it's a chase where the suspect didn't jump in the river. He was close enough to Cascade to give it a try though.
Also, silverdud, I tend to agree that this does stretch the laws of probability a little high as to why he picked that driveway.
