Burglary suspect arrested after foot chase

Westerville Police say Jason Eddingfield, 47, was arrested following a foot chase after Kohl’s security said he was seen stuffing two pair of Nike shoes in his pants before running out an emergency exit.

Responding officers saw Eddingfield walking on I270 over Westerville Road where he ran when he saw  the officers. Eddingfield refused to stop and was tackled by a police officer after he appeared to become tired from running.

The shoes from Kohl’s were found by a support column for the I270 bridge over Westerville.

Eddingfield also had a credit card with a woman’s name. He told officers he’d found it.

Westerville police had been looking for Eddingfield for several days to serve arrest warrants.

Eddingfield is believed to be the burglar who broke windows at Tim Hortons, Great Harvest, and Pasquale’s and grabbed charity cash bowls in the stores.

A tweet from Westerville police say Eddington confessed to a series of burglaries in the area over the last three months.
