WEARE TOWNSHIP — Two Hart men are lodged in the Oceana County Jail following a police chase on North Oceana Drive Wednesday night, March 28.

A third suspect who was not apprehended has been identified, and charges are pending against him, said Lt. Shane Hasty of the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office.

A deputy initiated a traffic stop at approximately 9 p.m. when the 22-year-old driver fled, said Hasty, and a short chase ensued. After crashing the vehicle, the suspects attempted to flee on foot. The deputy apprehended one of the suspects, and was assisted by a citizen in holding the 37-year-old man. A K9 track led to the driver, who was apprehended.

The third suspect fled the scene.

The driver is being charged with a felony of fleeing and eluding and a misdemeanor of operating while intoxicated. The passenger faces a parole violation charge.
