A man who ran from Delaware police officers ended up surrendering in a city cemetery earlier this month.
Officers responded shortly after 2:30 a.m. Nov. 9 to a report of a burglary in progress in the first block of Wootring Street.
Delaware police Capt. Adam Moore said officers arrived and confronted a man seen walking through backyards near the address of the initial report. Moore said the man started running toward South Sandusky Street after officers arrived.
The man tripped and fell after entering Oak Grove Cemetery, 334 S. Sandusky St., which ended his flight from police, Moore said.
Officers arrested the 43-year-old homeless man on a charge of obstructing official business, a second-degree misdemeanor.
Moore said officers tried without success to contact the person who made the initial call. He said they did not observe any signs of burglary at the scene.
