Alleged Fugitive Leads Salem Police on Chase

A wanted California man led Salem police officers on a brief car chase Tuesday afternoon before bailing out of his vehicle and fleeing on foot.

Sean P. Bell, 44, of 195 Wabash Ave., Ukiah, Calif., is expected to be arraigned in Salem District Court today on charges of being a fugitive from justice, failure to stop for police, disorderly conduct and negligent operation of a motor vehicle.

According to Lt. Scott Englehardt, local officers located Bell's pickup truck on Loring Avenue and he sped away when they attempted to pull him over.

Bell is also facing additional charges of speeding and passing illegally.

After a brief foot-chase, Bell was arrested on Canal Street.

Salem Patch will post additional information as it becomes available.
