Two men arrested fleeing police after S.S. burglary


Zone 3 Officers were dispatched to Wharton Court in the South Side Flats for a home burglary at 3:30 a.m. April 8.

The 36-year-victim called 911 to report he was home when heard noise in his garage and saw his white Chevy Camero being driven out of the garage. He also discovered money had been removed from his wallet.

A second police unit observed the stolen vehicle crossing the Hot Metal Bridge and followed it. From there, the stolen vehicle was driven onto Second Avenue, turned on Bates Street, and then onto the Parkway East.

After the police unit’s lights were activated, the Camaro sped away, exiting at Squirrel Hill. The Camero turned onto Lilac Street and the driver fled the vehicle on foot allowing it to drift into the police car. The police pursued the suspect on foot.

An Allegheny County Sheriff’s deputy observed the fleeing Camero on the Parkway and served as backup for the Pittsburgh police. The deputy held the passengers of the stolen vehicle at gun point until other police units arrived.

The driver was not apprehended. He is described as a black male wearing a black jacket.

The passengers, identified as Michael Angelo Edward Turner, 23, and Adam Franklin Lee Turner, 21, both of Uptown, were arrested. They are charged with burglary, receiving stolen property, and criminal conspiracy. A firearm was recovered from inside the vehicle.

The investigation continues.
