A 13 year old male was arrested and placed in detention after a criminal trespass complaint and resisting law enforcement.
Tuesday afternoon about 1:30 Plymouth Police Officer Shelly Cleveland was dispatched to the Plymouth Public Library to check on a juvenile who was in the computer lab after having been issued a no trespass order.
Officer Cleveland approached the male teen and he confirmed he had been given a verbal no trespass. When she told him he was being arrested he ran and a short foot pursuit begin. The teen ran out the front doors of the library and toward the post office and then into the alley. He ducked into the bushes on the north side of the old fire house but Officer Church located him and he again headed north on Center Street finally giving up in front of the Jules Amore Salon.
The unnamed male teen was placed in a detention center to await a court appearance.
