A Cleveland man is being held in the Richland County Jail after being arrested following a pursuit by troopers from the Mansfield State Highway Patrol. Jerry Key, 51, is charged with receiving stolen property, fleeing and eluding, as well as numerous other traffic violations. At 8:48 a.m. Wednesday, troopers were alerted by the Wyandot County Sheriff's Office about a stolen pick-up truck from the Upper Sandusky area, believed to be traveling east on U.S. 30 from their city. Troopers spotted the stolen truck entering Interstate-71 northbound from U.S. 30 at around 9:11 a.m. The truck initially pulled over, before fleeing and continuing north through Ashland, Wayne and Medina counties. Troopers were able to deploy stop sticks, deflating the truck's tires and forcing it to stop. Key tried to flee the pickup on foot but was apprehended.
