An Akron man faces a string of charges after he led Summit County sheriff’s deputies on a short chase.

Authorities say a deputy attempted to stop a car around 9:48 p.m. Sunday on South Main Street in Coventry Township.

The driver sped away and “tried to elude the deputy by pulling into a garage on South Main Street.” The driver picked the garage at random in an attempt to hide.

When the deputy approached, authorities say, the driver threw an object out of the passenger window.

The object was a gas generator used to make meth. Other meth-making materials and drugs were found in the vehicle.

John J. Kennedy, 37, was arrested for possession of drugs, tampering with evidence, illegal assembly or possession of chemicals to manufacture drugs and illegal manufacture of drugs.

The charge of illegal manufacture of drugs is a first-degree felony because of the incident’s close proximity to children. Kennedy is a registered sex offender in Summit County.

He is in the Summit County Jail.
