Criminal charges filed
- A preliminary hearing has been scheduled Tuesday for a Lawrence man who allegedly led police on a car chase Tuesday night after stealing a 1987 Camaro from the 900 block of East 23rd. The preliminary hearing date for Everett R. Cailteux, 20, 705 W. Sixth, was set Friday when Cailteux made his first court appearance on charges of felony theft, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, burglary, misdemeanor theft and attempting to elude police. The burglary and misdemeanor theft charges stem from the burglary Tuesday of a residence in the 1900 block of East 19th in which a handgun was stolen. At the time he was arrested, Cailteux was on parole from the Kansas Department of Corrections (KDOC) for previous felony convictions in Lyon and Shawnee counties. Bill Miskell, public information officer for KDOC, said the agency issued a parole violation warrant for Cailteux on Nov. 10.
