CHINO VALLEY - Police following up on burglaries on Monday, July 27, arrested a man who they were questioning after he ran from them, a Chino Valley Police spokesman said.

Officers were talking with Justin Sandy, 19, of Prescott Valley at about 11:15 a.m. and determined that they would arrest him, Lt. Vince Schaan said, when Sandy ran from them, heading into the Appaloosa Meadows neighborhood.

He hid in yard and bushes for about a half-hour as police searched the area for him, Schaan said.

"When Justin was located another foot chase ensued with Justin jumping over fences and into multiple yards until a perimeter could be established, with the assistance of the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office," Schaan said.

Officers established a perimeter and located Sandy.

He's been booked into the Camp Verde jail on two burglary charges and two weapons misconduct charges, Schaan said, and more charges, including criminal damage, resisting arrest, and trespassing, are expected.
