UPDATE @ 12:28 p.m. (April 24):

The man accused of stealing a woman’s car before witnesses chased him and held him down until police arrived is now facing charges.

Jason Bishop, 39, is charged with two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle.

One of those counts stems from Friday’s incident, where he is accused of stealing Kelsey Puterbaugh’s vehicle while it was left running in a driveway on Pleasant Avenue in Dayton.

According to a court affidavit, Puterbaugh and several other people went out looking for the vehicle and located in approximately an hour and a half later.

Witnesses were able to detain Bishop until police arrived on South Gettysburg Avenue, where the vehicle was located.

Bishop also is accused of stealing a vehicle at another location on Stanley Avenue in Dayton, according to court records.

The 39-year-old is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Monday afternoon in Dayton Municipal Court.

UPDATE @ 4:21 p.m. (April 21):

Police have identified the man taken into custody during this morning’s incident as Jason Bishop, 39.

Bishop was taken to a local hospital following his arrest and was released and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on a parole violation, police said.

We’re working to learn what charges may come from today’s incident.

INITIAL REPORT:

News Center 7 was on the scene as a man was seen running from a crashed vehicle and several other people were chasing after him.

A woman standing near the crashed vehicle said the vehicle had been stolen earlier in the morning.

“It got stolen this morning before I went to work,” Kelsey Puterbaugh told News Center 7’s Adam Marshall. “This my only car,” she said.

Dayton police confirmed that they believe the vehicle involved in the crash had been stolen by the man police took into custody following the incident around 9 a.m.

We’re working to learn if that man will be facing any charges.

Puterbaugh said they had been driving in the area searching for her car and recognized the vehicle and began following it before the crash happened on South Gettysburg Avenue near Lakeside Drive.

Citizens chase down suspected car thief

Our crew was there as the man witnesses said was driving the crashed vehicle jumped into a nearby body of water. The man then exited the water and walked down Gettysburg Avenue appearing to leave the scene of a crash.

Bystanders tackled the man and held him down until police arrived and detained him.

The man told News Center 7 crews that the people that were chasing him had been following him for no reason and that he didn’t steal the vehicle.

We’ll have the full break down of the events and where the investigation stands today on News Center 7 at noon and 5 p.m.

Xenia Trash Truck Body Cam

UPDATE @ 12:22 p.m. (June 22):

No citations have been issued in the crash, according to the report.

The report shows that Plemons was driving northwest on a private driveway when he drove of the left side of the road.  Plemons then drove off the right side of the road before he hit a tree and the building, the report shows.

Xenia police are continuing to investigate the cause of the crash.

UPDATE @ 2:15 p.m. (June 21): The Rumpke trash truck has been pulled from the building it crashed into this morning.

The office the Rumpke trash truck hit was the home administrator's office, Greene County Administrator Brandon Huddleson said. The nursing home administrator was in the front of the building and was not injured. 

"We've had some of these issues before [a car hit the treasurer's office on Main Street some time ago]... I wasn't expecting to see a trash truck actually inside our building," he said.

Huddleson said, "by the grace of God, the folks that were in those offices were out in the field or out in other places in the building." 

He noted it's hard to imagine that anyone who would have been in the building could have escaped. 

There are about 50 residents in the building, but the entire wing where the truck hit is all administrative/maintenance offices.

There was some ancillary flooding in the damaged portion of the building, because of the sprinkler system that activated. Otherwise, he said, it's business as usual at the nursing home.

UPDATE @ 12:45 p.m.: 

A building support will have to be installed at the Greenwood Manor nursing home before the Rumpke trash truck lodged inside a wing of offices can be pulled out, Greene County building inspectors said.

No employees were in the wing when the truck crashed into the home, 711 Dayton Xenia Road, about 8:45 a.m. 

A Rumpke official said the company and police are continuing to investigate the incident.
