Man arrested after chase

Carmelito Santiago Jr., 40, of 87 Riverboat Village Road, who was arrested at 7:29 p.m. on Summit Street, pleaded not guilty in Eastern Hampshire District Court Aug. 19 to these charges: receiving a stolen motor vehicle (subsequent offense), failing to stop for police, receiving stolen property over $250 (subsequent offense), possessing burglary tools, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, leaving scene of property damage, resisting arrest, failing to stop for police and operating with a suspended or revoked license (subsequent offense).

Parentela said the incident unfolded after the station received a report from an off-duty officer that a car believed stolen from Pittsfield was spotted near Riverboat Village Road. Officers eventually caught up with the vehicle on Summit Street, where it was parked after having struck a parked truck.

Unable to find the operator, police called in help from the state police K-9 unit, who found Santiago hiding in thick bushes at the end of Summit Street, Parentela said. Santiago was arrested after a brief struggle with police. Santiago is due back in court Sept. 17.
