Details

Some Madison College students had a couple of unexpected guests show up at their science lab Monday afternoon. One was a security guard and one was a suspected thief. The former was engaged in a foot chase with the latter.

The suspect was initially spotted in the men's locker room trying to cut locks off lockers. Recently, phones, wallets and other items had been stolen following similar break-ins.

When security staff tried to talk to the bolt carrying suspect, he took off running: first outside of the school, then through the science lab, then back outside and into a parking lot. There, he jumped into a car and locked the doors. That was until he realized the tenacious security team was about to get into the vehicle through its trunk.

The suspect - who is not enrolled at the school - jumped out of the car, and was quickly taken to the ground, which is where he was held until the MPD arrived.
