Sutton man facing slew of charges after running from police

SUTTON — A 52-year-old man was arrested following an incident in Sutton last month.

Police say Wesley Kidder, of Sutton, is charged with attempting to elude police, gross negligent operation, and leaving the scene of an accident.

On June 19, troopers were attempting to locate Kidder to arrest him on active arrest warrants.

Police spotted him while he was traveling south on Route 5 in Sutton at speeds of over 80 miles-per-hour.

Police attempted to stop Kidder but he did not yield.

A few minutes later he crashed in the Village of West Burke, a short distance from where he was last seen.

He fled on foot and was later apprehended at a home in Sutton.

A 52-year-old woman passenger in the vehicle sustained significant injuries as a result of the crash and was eventually taken to DHMC.

Kidder was lodged at the Northeast Regional Correctional Center for the previous charges.
