BANGOR, Mich. (WOOD) — The search for a wanted man who escaped from a police cruiser is over.
Bangor Police Chief Tommy Simpson confirmed Tuesday that 21-year-old Dominick Wheeler was in the Van Buren County jail.
Wheeler is accused of breaking into Ms. Laundry Mat at 107 E. Monroe St. in Bangor and starting a fire.
The Bangor Fire Department put out the flames, but the building suffered extensive damage.
Simpson said Wheeler was arrested after the alleged break-in, but escaped from the police cruiser, sparking a search. Simpson said Wheeler was also wanted on other outstanding warrants.
It’s unclear how Wheeler ended up in the jail.
