Trooper Shawn McIntyre of the Massachusetts State Police while on patrol in area Newbury and Common Streets came upon a red Toyota Corolla which had been reported stolen. Trooper McIntyre radioed into Lawrence Police Dispatch to confirm this information, and advise LPD units of his location.
Moments later Detective Jessie Fabian and Officer Eduardo De La Cruz arrived on scene and along with Trooper McIntyre attempted to box in the stolen motor vehicle in an attempt to prevent it from fleeing. Despite this effort the vehicle fled the area nearly striking the Officers. Shorty, thereafter the operator of the vehicle exited and began to flee the scene on foot. Following a brief foot pursuit Officer De La Cruz was able to take the individual into custody. Jose Rivera-DeJesus age 40 of Andover was arraigned in Lawrence District Court charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, failure to stop for police, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and several motor vehicle offenses.
