Elkhart man arrested after chase

A 28-year-old Elkhart man is in custody after leading Cass County Sheriff’s deputies in a pursuit from Indiana to Michigan over the weekend.
Sheriff Joe Underwood Jr. said the pursuit started in Goshen and Cass County deputies continued the pursuit once it entered their jurisdiction. The offender’s damaged vehicle was tracked several miles in Jefferson Township as well as Calvin Township after one of its tires was flattened.
The damaged tire allowed deputies to track a groove in the roadway and locate the vehicle abandoned along North Shore Drive in Jefferson Township.
Deputies observed the suspect running in the woods in an attempt to avoid capture.
Cass County Deputies located methamphetamine, heroin and a loaded semi-automatic pistol in the man’s possession.
