Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — Centreville Po­lice De­part­ment is cred­it­ing North­brook res­i­dents for the ar­rest of a man who led them on a brief chase Tues­day, June 14.

Of­fi­cer Den­nis Lan­non at­tempted to stop a speed­ing Ford about 2:26 p.m. in the vicin­ity of Church Hill Road and Elm Street, but the driver didn’t stop, po­lice said. A short pur­suit en­sued, end­ing at a res­i­dence in North­brook.

The driver and a ju­ve­nile pas­sen­ger ran from the ve­hi­cle, po­lice said. Ad­di­tional Centreville PD units and deputies from the Queen Anne’s County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­sponded to help with the search. They cap­tured the ju­ve­nile who iden­ti­fied the driver as Austin Dale Wil­son, 26, of Church Hill, po­lice said.

Po­lice re­ceived nu­mer­ous calls and tips from neigh­bor­hood res­i­dents that led to the lo­ca­tion and ar­rest of Wil­son, ac­cord­ing to Lt. Ken­neth Rhodes of Centreville Po­lice.

Wil­son faces charges of dis­turb­ing the peace, dis­or­derly con­duct, pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled dan­ger­ous sub­stance, at­tempt­ing to elude the po­lice, neg­li­gent driv­ing, reck­less driv­ing and ad­di­tional traf­fic charges.

He was ar­rested June 14, posted $5,000 bond and was re­leased that same day. A court date of July 25 has been set on the crim­i­nal charges.
