SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - A Weedsport man was arrested early Wednesday morning after speeding away from a traffic stop on South Salina Street in Syracuse.
Police say they were trying to pull over a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado when the driver sped off.
Police pursued the driver until he came to a stop at Ostrom Avenue and Madison Street and then jumped out of the vehicle.
A K9 dog, “Nik,” and an officer finally caught 47-year-old Robert Stryker allegedly hiding behind a home on Ostrom Avenue.
Police discovered that the Chevrolet Silverado Stryker was driving had been stolen in Cayuga County.
They charged him with:
- Fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property
- Third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle
- Third-degree unlawful fleeing a police officer
Styker was taken to the Justice Center, where he’s awaiting arraignment.
A passenger in the vehicle – 52-year-old Keon Stith of Syracuse – did not try to flee police.
He was charged with third-degree unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and released on an appearance ticket.
