December 29, 2017

PUTNEY, Vt. (AP) — Vermont State Police say footprints in the snow led them to a man they had been seeking for a week after a high speed chase and crash.

Authorities say 26-year-old Jacob McAllister of Westminster refused to pull over on Dec. 21 and eventually topped speeds of 130 mph before crashing into parked cars and a home in Walpole, New Hampshire, and running off. Police found more than 250 bags of heroin in the car, along with suspected stolen property.

Police say McAllister fled again Thursday after being stopped in Putney. A Bellows Falls officer found him in a garage. He faces multiple charges.

McAllister is being held at the Springfield prison.

McAllister’s attorney Rick Ammons says anyone charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
