A suspected burglar is dead after deputies say he tried to make his getaway early Wednesday morning.
Wayne County deputies say Trooper Bennie Grady was heading home just after midnight when he spotted a suspicious vehicle at a neighbor's home on Rosewood Road. As the state trooper was getting out of his cruiser, they say Dustin Mitchell of Princeton ran out of the home, jumped in his car and took off.
Deputies say by the time the trooper caught up to Mitchell he found the man dead after his vehicle crashed into a tree. They say some stolen property was recovered after the crash.
