Possible drug deal gone bad results in chase on land, water


Police Chief Jim Agner described an incident that occurred on Saturday afternoon as something you would see in an action movie.

Police were called to investigate a robbery and the theft of a truck on Harbor Way. The alleged robbery victim is someone known to police who comes to town periodically to buy drugs, Agner said.

The man had reportedly approached a group of young people on Harbor Way to buy drugs. Instead of selling the man drugs, Agner said, they robbed him of about $125 and ran.

The man was able to keep up with them, so the suspects jumped in a truck and sped off through town.
