CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The man who led police and Summit County law enforcement on a wild chase has been arraigned on numerous felony crimes.

Randy Schiffbauer is being held on a $1 million bond at the Summit County Jail following his recent at the Barberton Municipal Courthouse.

Charges include:

  • Aggravated robbery
  • 2 counts of felonious assault
  • Failure to comply with order or signal of police officer
  • Grand theft
  • Resist arrest
  • Receiving stolen property

During the June 2 incident, residents in the city of Green reported seeing a man, later identified as Schiffbauer, attempting to break into several vehicles along Greensburg Road.

Deputies responded and saw Schiffbauer fleeing the scene at high speed in an RV with the doors open and a power cord dragging behind.

Schiffbauer, refused to stop for deputies and intentionally struck other vehicles, including other law enforcement cars, during the chase.

Eventually, Schiffbauer drove onto Briarwood Way and fled from the RV on foot. He was eventually tracked down by a OSHP K-9 unit and taken into custody.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol released dash camera video that shows troopers and other law enforcement agencies pursuing Schiffbauer in the RV.

The 24-year-old suspect is the same man who, law enforcement said, drove a stolen bulldozer through an Akron-area neighborhood in 2019.

An Akron man is now charged with driving a stolen bulldozer through a neighborhood and destroying a house and cars.
