MORRISTOWN, NJ - A man accused of recently leading police on a late-night foot-chase into a Roxbury cement plant was arrested Sunday in Morristown after again trying to flee, police said.
The man, Michael Raymond, 41, was nabbed by Morris County Park Police on Sunday afternoon, said Park Police Lt. Chris List. He said Raymond is the man who evaded police on March 28 when he ran into the County Concrete facility in Kenvil after refusing to stop when an officer tried to pull him over for motor vehicle infractions.
"The subject from the pursuit last Wednesday night was apprehended on Sunday ... after another brief foot pursuit," List said on Wednesday. "A warrant was issued late Friday night and, through information received through Crimestoppers, he was seen in Morristown on Sunday afternoon."
List said officers from the Park Police "spotted (Raymond) in the area of Morris Street and he fled on foot." Raymond didn't have the same luck he enjoyed March 28, when he evaded capture even though police - using a drone and a State Police helicopter - scoured Kenvil for several hours.
List said Raymond, of Morristown, was "taken into custody without further incident" and charged with eluding a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, several drug charges and "numerous" motor vehicle offenses.
