3/6/18 – 5:11 A.M.

A Lima man is facing charges after leading Putnam County authorities on a chase that spanned several miles Monday afternoon. The Columbus Grove Police Department reports the incident began around 1:25 p.m. An officer tried to pull over 38-year-old Timothy Boedicker on West Sycamore Street.

Boedicker sped away, heading west out of the village. He would drive south down State Route 15 into Allen County and then west on U.S. 30 all the way into Delphos before turning east on Lincoln Highway. Officers arrested Boedicker after he finally stopped near Leatherwood Road.

Boedicker faces failure to comply with a police officer, reckless operation, and driving under suspension charges.
