A Ridgeway man was arrested Wednesday following a short foot pursuit, according to a release from the Henry County Sheriff’s Office.

Rodney Lashan King, 38, of 6377 Soapstone Road, Ridgeway, was charged with felony breaking and entering, petty larceny and obstruction of justice, the release said. He was jailed on a $2,500 secured bond, it added.

According to the release, the sheriff’s office received a call of a burglary in progress at a residence on Old Leaksville Road.

When deputies arrived at the residence, the release said, a man fled from the house. The neighbors indicated to the deputies where the man had run into the woods. A search of the area was conducted, and a man matching the description was spotted, the release stated.

After a short foot pursuit, the release said, the suspect was apprehended.
