VIDEO: Traffic stop turns into intense foot chase… suspect taken into …

HYANNIS It was an intense foot chase which began during a traffic stop and ended inside Sears shoe department. At about 5:30PM, Barnstable Police Street Crimes Officer Scott Wright was making what sounded like a routine traffic stop in the area of Sears Automotive next to the Cape Cod Mall. Just moments into the stop, Officer Wright found himself in an intense foot chase which took him across parking lots, down walkways, and into the mall, where Wright finally took the suspect into custody.

Wright, a veteran member of the Barnstable Police Street Crimes Unit, reacted quickly while managing to communicate his situation and location with fellow officers responding to assist. As you will hear in the following video, it was Wright s composure and pertinacity (a quality found both in pit bulls and good police officers) which brought the chase to a safe conclusion. Shawn Legeyt, age 33, the man who ran (wearing the Boston Bruins hoodie in the video), was wanted on outstanding arrest warrants.

Reginald Winbush, age 45, of West Yarmouth, also had arrest warrants. According to sources, he was cooperative with police and did not run, raising his hands in the air and staying put when Officer Wright took off after Legeyt. Both men were transported back to BPD Headquarters for booking and processing.

The exact nature of the arrest warrants was not released at the time of this report.

Inside each of the packages was special wrapping and containers designed to try and thwart a Narcotics K9 from smelling the 1 pound bags of marijuana that had been mailed in heat sealed freezer bags. A total of 16 lbs of marijuana valued at approximately $70,000 was found in White s possession.
