New Sharon Man Leads Pella Police on Chase

Shortly after responding to a Burglary call on Franklin Street Tuesday afternoon, the Pella Police department found a suspect attempting to exit the residence. A fifteen minute chase ensued, which culminated with the apprehension and arrest of Anthony Keith Dommer, 23 of New Sharon, in a garage on the 400 block of Independence Street. Dommer was later charged with Burglary 2nd, Domestic Abuse Assault, Theft 3rd Degree, Interference with Official Acts, and Trespassing. Dommer was already being investigated for a theft scheme that began on June 2 in Pella, where he was accused of stealing $600. Officers charged him with this crime subsequent to his assault arrest. Dommer is currently held in the Marion County Jail on $29,000 bond. With any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
