IONIA — A man has been arrested and charged with multiple crimes three weeks after allegedly leading police on a high speed motorcycle chase through four counties.

Andrew Kruczynski, 27, of Westland, was arraigned in 64A District Court in Ionia. He is charged with two counts of fleeing and eluding in the third degree and one count of fleeing and eluding in the fourth degree.

Michigan State Police Lakeview Post Trooper Randy Gariglio identified Kruczynski as the suspect after a lengthy investigation.

Kruczynski allegedly led police on a high speed chase on April 6. The chase began in Lansing when a Michigan State Police trooper attempted to stop a motorcycle for speeding.

Law enforcement officials in Ionia County were notified of the ongoing chase. An Ionia County deputy located the motorcycle and began to pursue before being involved in a collision. The details of the collision have not yet been made public due to a pending court case.

Kruczynski eluded police in Clinton, Eaton, Ionia and Kent counties.

Kruczynski was identified in part by registration information from the Michigan Secretary of State. He was arrested in Canton Township in Wayne County on April 27 — three weeks after the incident. He was transported to the Ionia County Jail in Ionia.
