Police initially tried to pull over Samuel D. Bowles on a traffic violation.
A man indicted last week and awaiting trial on a robbery charge led police on an early morning chase through Canton Friday, stopping only on a dead-end street.
Sgt. Roger Croston said police initially tried to pull over Samuel D. Bowles on a traffic violation at 4:35 a.m. Friday at Rowland Avenue and Tuscarawas Street E.
But Bowles, 21, of 7405 Brookford Ave. SE in Sandy Township, fled.
He led police on a chase at less than 40 mph for about four minutes until he pulled down a dead-end street at Charles Ede Boulevard SE, Croston said.
Bowles was arrested at 4:40 a.m. in the 1700 block of Gateway Boulevard SE and booked into the jail on charges of felony failure to comply with police and resisting arrest, Stark County Jail records said.
Stark County court records show Bowles was indicted March 31 by a Stark County grand jury on a robbery charge. Details of the incident that led to the charges were not listed on the court’s website at www.starkcountycjis.org. But Bowles had been arrested Feb. 17 and released a week later on a $50,000 pre-trial release bond pending a hearing, the website said.
No trial date has been set.
He remained in the jail Friday, held in lieu of $25,750 bond on the new charges pending a hearing in Canton Municipal Court.
