A Glen Cove man suspected in an August break-in attempt of a T-Mobile store and who last week led police on a high-speed chase was arrested Wednesday in Mineola on multiple charges, Nassau County police said.

Rashawn Bellamy, 26, of 1438 Avalon Square, was arrested about 10 a.m. on charges of third-degree burglary, reckless endangerment, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and several traffic violations, police said.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.

Third Squad detectives said Bellamy tried to break into the T-Mobile store at 1073 Northern Blvd. in Flower Hill on Aug. 27 last year. He ran off when police arrived at the scene but left behind a 2009 Porsche he was driving, detectives said.

On April 9, Third Precinct officers pulled over Bellamy, who was driving a 2011 BMW, on Earle Ovington Boulevard in Uniondale.

According to a news release, "as the officers approached the vehicle, the defendant accelerated in an unsafe manner, putting them in danger of being struck. The defendant sped off, leading officers on a high-speed chase. Officers terminated the pursuit."

Police then found Bellamy in the rear of a building on Old Country Road at 10 a.m. Wednesday and arrested him, the release said.
