A Troy man is facing multiple charges after running from the police. That's according to the Colonie Police Department.
Police say that Justin Montgomery, 24, was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment in the first-degree, criminal mischief in the third-degree, criminal possession of stolen property, aggravated unlicensed operation, possession of a hypodermic needle, and driving while abilities impaired by drugs.
Police first recieved a call around 12:45 p.m. Wednesday that a man was breaking into a vehicle in the parking lot of Newton Plaza's CVS. The suspect had fled the scene before police arrived but investigators were able to use a description to identify him as Montgomery.
They found the man sitting at a gas pump at the Hess on Loudon Road. Montgomery fled when officers approached and asked him to put his hands on the steering wheel, according to police. Police lost sight of him after he left the lot, but minutes later began receiving calls of a reckless driver heading north on Loudon Rd. before turning into Latham Farms.
