Pursuit suspects found hiding in storm drain in Miamisburg

MIAMISBURG — Two people believed to be involved in a high-speed pursuit with Franklin and Springboro police were found by Miamisburg police hiding in a storm drain Monday morning.

Springboro police initially spotted the stolen vehicle involved in the pursuit in the southwest corner of the city. The car was stolen out of Dayton, police said.

Officers from Franklin and Springboro were chasing the car shortly before 10 a.m. and terminated the pursuit in the area of Miamisburg due to speed and the anticipation of higher traffic volume, Springboro Police Chief Jeff Kruithoff said.

The driver of the car, Jeffrey Bostick, 34, was booked into the Warren County Jail on suspicion of failure to comply, obstructing official business and receiving stolen property. The passenger was released pending potential misdemeanor charges, Miamisburg police said.
