A 24-year-old man pleaded not guilty Friday to burglarizing a Prune Hill house and leading Camas police on a three-hour manhunt on Nov. 19.

Bradley E. Jensen remains at the Clark County Jail on $150,000 bail.

He is scheduled to be tried Jan. 22 for several crimes.

He is accused of breaking into a woman's home Nov. 19 and stealing jewelry and other personal items before attempting to flee in a stolen white Honda.

Two counts of third-degree assault and obstructing a law enforcement officer stem from accusations that he injured two police officers in the escape attempt. Both officers were treated and released from a local hospital the same day.

Jensen is also accused of hitting a Camas police patrol vehicle before fleeing on foot. He was apprehended nearly three hours later by officers and police dogs.

Jensen indicated he is homeless but gave his parents' address in Arlington, according to court documents.
