Police spent 45 minutes chasing a man suspected of breaking into cars through backyards and a brook, but eventually caught and arrested him. The suspect was identified as Tahj Rudolph, 19, of Milton. At 4:04 a.m. Monday, police received a call of a man breaking into cars on Viola Street. Officers Kelli Little and Liam Roper arrived a minute later and began shadowing Rudolph. According to police, when Little and Roper revealed themselves as police officers, Rudolph fled, running through several backyards and into Kelly Field. Rudolph discarded a tote bag and several other items during the pursuit, police said. With help from a State Police canine, officers eventually caught up with Rudolph at a shed on Central Avenue. He was charged with breaking and entering and receiving stolen property.
