ASHBURNHAM – A suspect was taken into custody following a car chase that ended with a standoff outside of Cushing Academy.
According to Massachusetts State Police, a lengthy police chase began Thursday morning when an individual sped off while Winchendon police attempted to pull him over. The chase ended when the suspect drove into the wood line on Route 101 in Ashburnham, which happens to be across the street from Cushing Academy.
Officials say that the driver locked himself into his car and refused to exit his vehicle, so the Special Tactical Operations Team and Crisis Response Unit of the Massachusetts State Police were called in assist.
At about 1:40 p.m., the Ashburnham Police Department announced on their Facebook page that the suspect was taken into custody peacefully.
Police have not released any information about the suspected driver or the reason why he was pulled over.
