Shortly before 7 PM, Lakewood Police were contacted by Howell Police as they searched for a party who fled a traffic stop by Howell Officers – on Ridge Avenue.
At the same time, LCSW received a call from the neighboring County Line Manor development about a man seen running through backyards.
LCSW members arriving to the area realized they may be searching for the same suspect wanted by the Lakewood and Howell Police Departments .
While searching the area, one of the LCSW members spotted a man fitting the description of their suspect in the rear of the Calvary building on County Line Road, and flagged down an officer.
The suspect was apprehended and was arrested for outstanding warrants – though police believe he isn’t the same suspect who fled. [TLS-24 A/B/TLS-CCP]
