On 10/31/2017 at approximately 9:18 pm, a Troop D Trooper assigned to the “south west patrol” was conducting criminal interdiction on Route 14 in the town of CANTERBURY. The “south west patrol” covers the town of CANTERBURY 24 hours a day. While patrolling an area near the Canterbury Municipal buildings, the Trooper spotted a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot that began doing donuts. The Trooper activated his police lights and attempted to stop the vehicle but it took off at a high rate of speed down Route 14. The Trooper attempted to catch up to the vehicle but it turned down a side street and the operator bailed out and took off on foot. The two passengers inside the vehicle remained on scene and provided Troopers with the identity and location of the driver. Troopers were able to apprehend the driver and place him under arrest. James Thoma (DOB 04/27/1999) of Cemetery Road, CANTERBURY was transported back to Troop D and charged with (2) counts of reckless endangerment, interfering with police, engaging police in a pursuit, operating an unregistered vehicle, operating an uninsured motor vehicle and reckless driving. Thoma is scheduled to appear in Danielson Superior Court on 11/15/2017.
