Continue reading below

A suspected burglar led a Freetown police officer on a chase across an icy drainage ditch Saturday night, and both fell through the ice multiple times before the officer captured and arrested the suspect, police said. Freetown police responded to a burglary alarm at Self-Serve Used Auto Parts on Chace Road around 11:30 p.m. Saturday and found a man, later identified as Derek R. DeJesus, 37, of New Bedford, allegedly hiding in the woods. The suspect fled and one of the police officers chased him through the woods and across a frozen drainage ditch. Both the suspect and the officer fell through the ice several times, according to the police report, with the suspect falling headfirst at one point before wading through and continuing his flight. DeJesus is facing numerous charges and due in court in Fall River on Tuesday.
