TRUMBULL CO., Ohio (WKBN) – Police have arrested a suspect after a chase through Trumbull County.

Dauntell Stanley is facing several charges including failure to comply, receiving stolen property, reckless operation and driving under a suspended license.

Investigators say employees of Oak Street Health were unloading medical supplies at their facility off Belmont Ave in Liberty at about 9:30 a.m. when their vehicle got stolen.

911 caller: I work at Oak Street Health and someone just took off in our van.

The chase went through several areas including McDonald, Warren, Howland, and Vienna and reached speeds up to 100 miles per hour before entering the City of Cortland.

Cortland Police Chief David Morris said the suspect’s vehicle was “very easy to spot.”

Police dash camera video shows the van going down a dead-end road, driving past no trespassing signs, beyond the gravel and into the woods where Stanley was arrested.

“He cooperated in the sense that he didn’t fight with us. He didn’t run on us on foot. He practically surrendered and was taken into custody without incident,” Morris said.

Morris says Stanley didn’t talk much or say why he wouldn’t stop.

Stanley is now facing felony charges out of both Girard Municipal and Central District Courts.

“Any reckless driving presents a danger when these folks are bent on getting away. That just not worth the risk, so he was taken into custody, endangered all those people for nothing,” Morris said

Multiple agencies were involved, including Liberty, Vienna, Howland, Warren, Cortland, Brookfield, Weathersfield, McDonald, Niles, Bazetta and OSP.
