Milford police are searching for a male suspect who fled the scene after a recent traffic stop.
The incident occurred on Saturday, Nov. 5 around 11:15 p.m., as a Ford passenger vehicle was stopped for speeding between at 35 to 40 mph in a 15 mph zone.
Police stopped the vehicle at North Sheeran Drive and United Drive and found the car contained a female driver and a male and female passenger.
When the officer went back to his vehicle, the male passenger got out of the car and ran south towards South Sheeran Drive.
The driver said the fleeing man was named in outstanding arrest warrants and that he just moved into a residence on North Sheeran Drive approximately a month ago.
A Law Enforcement Information Network (LEIN) check showed the suspect was named in two warrants; one out of the 36th District Court for a misdemeanor narcotic paraphernalia offense and a two-count misdemeanor out of the 52-1 District Court for operating with a suspended license and operating with the presence of a controlled substance.
Police went to the man’s residence, where his mother answered the door. A search did not turn up the suspect, but his mother said she would contact him.
A police dog also assisted in the search, which proved fruitless.
A warrant for the man was requested by Milford police for resisting and obstructing a police officer.
