Three Archbold residents and the man who led Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers on a high-speed chase were among those indicted by the Fulton County Grand Jury, Monday, Jan. 14.

Indictments were handed down against 17 individuals.

Kentwan J. Robinson, 26, Bridgeport, Conn., was indicted on one count each of failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer, having weapons while under disability, and unlawful possession of dangerous ordnance.

Robinson was identified by troopers as the driver of a car they stopped on the Ohio Turnpike west of Swanton for speeding, but the vehicle fled and was chased at high speed to Exit 25, the Archbold Fayette interchange.

The chase got off the turnpike at the exit, then ended up traveling west on St. Rt. 2. The car crashed in Stryker.

Robinson fled the vehicle, but was captured within minutes. Two male passengers fled and were later caught.

A loaded 9mm handgun was found in the vehicle.
