From the New Bremen Police:

On Monday, May 16, 2022, at 10:56pm, officers from the New Bremen Police Department conducted a traffic stop in the 700-block of E. Monroe St. The male passenger during the stop gave the officers false information as to his identity. As officers were confirming the information provided, the passenger exited the vehicle and fled on foot. William Barrow, an Ohio man with an outstanding felony warrant out of Colorado, was later identified as the man who fled on foot. On Tuesday morning, the Ohio State Highway Patrol located William Barrow on I-75 near the Anna exit. He was then transported to the Auglaize County Jail for presenting false information and obstructing official business. Thank you to the Auglaize County Sheriff's Office, the Minster Police Department, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol Aviation unit for their assistance.
