One Still At Large After Pursuit

Staff Writer

One suspect is still at-large following a high-speed pursuit that stretched two counties Friday morning.
According to a report from the Auglaize County Sheriff's Office, at approximately 2:32 a.m. Friday, a deputy on routine patrol attempted to stop a vehicle for an alleged speeding violation on U.S. 33 at Moulton Fort Amanda Road. The vehicle fled from the deputy at speeds of more 100 mph and into St. Marys, Celina and surrounding areas.
Law enforcement officials deployed stop-sticks and deflated the tires on the vehicle. After continuing through a corn field, the vehicle became stuck in a highway fence at U.S. 33 and Kettlersville Road.
Three of the four occupants from the vehicle fled the crash scene. Two suspects were apprehended within a short time and one remains at large and is believed to be in the area of U.S. 33 and Kettlersville Road. As of press time, deputies were still at the scene searching for the last suspect.
Investigators believe the last suspect is Dylan Kusmyn, 20, of St. Marys. An interview with the other suspects reportedly turned up Kusmyn’s name.
The sheriff’s office was assisted by St. Marys, Wapakoneta and Celina police departments, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
Residents in the area are encouraged to call the sheriff's office if they spot anyone unfamiliar walking in the area.
