A Westerville man led officers from two police departments on two separate foot chases last weekend after he allegedly stole two vehicles and tried to steal a third.

While on patrol near the 4000 block of Kenny Road at 6:20 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 20, an Upper Arlington officer reported clocking a black Toyota Camry traveling at 67 miles per hour in a 35-mph zone. He stopped the vehicle at a nearby gas station in the 4400 block of Kenny.

As the officer was approaching, the driver got out and ran east.

Upper Arlington police were able to establish the vehicle he'd been driving had been reported stolen in Columbus, and officers were conducting a search of the area when they were alerted that another UA officer was in pursuit of a stolen vehicle near Sunny 95 Park, 4395 Carriage Hill Lane.

According to reports, the suspect in the second stolen vehicle jumped from the car near the park, and officers from Upper Arlington and Columbus began scouring the area in search of him.

Several minutes later, after that search was called off, UAPD dispatch received a report from an Upper Arlington man who said a man had tried to steal his vehicle in the 3800 block of Kenny Road. The victim in that incident reported he chased the suspect to the 1100 block of Millcreek Lane, where police from Upper Arlington and Columbus were able to apprehend the would-be thief.

Upper Arlington officers were able to identify the man, Matthew E. Roseberry, 40, of Myrtle Drive in Westerville, as the suspect who fled from police earlier. Roseberry was charged with receiving stolen property, a fourth-degree felony, and speeding, feeling a law enforcement officer and reckless operation of a motor vehicle, all misdemeanors. He was taken to the Franklin County jail.
