Centralia Man Leads Police On Foot Chase Following Foiled BurglaryA 22-year-old Centralia man was arrested following a foot chase with Centralia Police after allegedly trying to break into a dentist's office Saturday morning.
Jeremiah Bobbett of Mitchell Street was charged in Marion County Court Monday for alleged attempted burglary, possession of burglary tools and resisting a peace officer. Bond was set at $25,000 and the public defender appointed.
Police say an alert resident noticed Bobbett trying to gain entry to the office of Dr. Jess Mikesell on Jonas Street. While a window was broken out, no entry was gained to the office. Bobbett had gotten into a vehicle by the time police arrived. He allegedly stopped the vehicle at Saddler and Franklin and ran on foot. A chase through yards in the neighborhood ended a few blocks later when Bobbett fell and was taken into custody.
Police say Bobbett had a large number of burglary tools with him, including a hammer, pry bar, screw drivers and bolt cutters.
