Man charged with burglary, eluding police

FOSTORIA — A Fremont man was arrested after a pursuit early Monday morning, according to Fostoria Police Department.

Quentin D. Sims, 33, was arrested on charges of burglary and eluding police.

About 2:15 a.m., a person at 944 Leonard St. reported a man in a blue hooded jacket was looking in windows and testing doors. About half an hour later, a person reported the suspicious man was back out at the location, according to a police report.

Officers located a vehicle fitting the description, and there was an attempt to stop it.

According to a Fostoria Police Department release, the driver tried to drive head-on into a cruiser, and there was a pursuit through Fostoria and into Wood County, with the vehicle being wrecked in a field.

Sims said he had injuries from the accident and was treated and released from a hospital, the release states.

He was incarcerated in Seneca County Jail.

Fostoria’s canine and Wood County Sheriff’s Office assisted.

“I am thankful that the arrest resulted in no one being seriously injured,” Chief Keith Loreno of Fostoria Police Department said in the release.

“These individuals do not think about the dangers they pose on the community and to persons traveling on the roadway
