Lawrence police arrested 29-year-old Darius Pierre Trammel, of Lawrence, for burglary, trespassing, criminal property damage, theft and obstruction of legal process after a call of suspicious activity in a parking lot at the 800th block of West 24th Street about 6 p.m. Saturday. According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Craig Shanks, police arrived at the parking lot behind Laird Noller Automotive and found Trammel, who then attempted to flee, first crawling under a pickup truck and then hopping a fence.
“Unfortunately for him, he picked one of our more fleet-of-foot officers, and the chase was over shortly,” Shanks said. Officers found that one vehicle in the lot had a stereo stolen. Another vehicle was damaged. Officers then took Trammel into custody.
