Stolen RV rams Ohio pharmacy, spurs chase, arrest

MARION, Ohio (AP) — Officers say an Ohio man rammed a stolen RV into a pharmacy, then struck a police cruiser and spurred a brief chase before he crashed into a home and was arrested.

The chase began around 2 a.m. Tuesday when police responded to an alarm at a pharmacy in Marion, about 45 miles north of Columbus. Police say the suspect in the recreational vehicle fled the scene as officers fired shots to try to stop him.

Officers chased the RV for a few blocks until it hit a home. Police say the suspect was taken into custody after a brief struggle and was being held pending formal charges.

No injuries were reported.

It wasn’t immediately clear how the RV was stolen.
