Quick city police response nets arrest - 06/13

CUMBERLAND — Quick response to a burglary in progress in the 300 block of Grand Avenue led to the arrest of a city man a short time later after he allegedly fled the scene.

Cumberland Police re-sponding to the 7:30 p.m. complaint Tuesday were advised that the suspect drove away in a white car. Officers located the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on East Third Street. Police attempted to stop the car but the driver reportedly continued to travel several blocks before stopping in the 200 block of Seymour Street.

Police advised the driver of the reason for the stop before the victim positively identified the driver as the burglary suspect.

Kelly Edgar Cole, 36, city, was taken into custody without incident and charged with third- and fourth-degree burglary and malicious destruction of property over $500.

Cole remained jailed late Wednesday morning at the Allegany County Detention Center on $35,000 bond.

Cole allegedly attempted to pry open the victim’s front door before he began kicking it in. The victim said he had to use his body to keep the door closed to prevent the suspect from gaining entry.

A neighbor of the victim observed the suspect as he drove away, police said.
