Three Hartford residents are under arrest after a wild chase which followed an alleged shoplifting incident at the Home Depot store at 115 Putnam Boulevard in Glastonbury Wednesday afternoon.
Police say Omara Williams, 22, was driving a white Nissan and her passenger Dana Vincent, 34, caused a crash at the scene and that started the chase. Investigators believe Williams, fleeing on foot, called for a ride and was picked up by a vehicle driven by Thermas Hough, 22, who’s accused of ramming a police cruiser and crashing his car on Main Street, said authorities. Hough was shot in the hand by a Glastonbury officer during the ordeal. State Police have been called to investigate the shooting.
Williams is charged with reckless driving, operating a vehicle under suspension, evading responsibility, interfering with a police officer, sixth-degree larceny, and sixth-degree conspiracy to commit larceny. She is free on $100,000 bail. Vincent is charged with sixth-degree larceny, sixth-degree larceny conspiracy, and making a false statement. She was held on $75,000 bail.
Hough, who was arrested by State Police was charged with reckless endangerment, criminal mischief, reckless driving, evading responsibility, and operating without a license. Troopers say additional charges are expected against Hough. He was held on $100,000 bail.
Police say Officer Matthew Geddes shot Hough. He’s a three-year veteran of the Glastonbury Police force.
