Still no charges in two-county police chase earlier this week

April 2, 2010


Shawnee County prosecutors said Friday they were still waiting on reports from the Kansas Highway Patrol before determining whether to file charges against a Douglas County man after a two-county high-speed chase on Tuesday.

Dakota Loomis, a deputy chief of staff in the Shawnee County district attorney’s office, said Friday that the 48-year-old rural Overbrook man had posted $15,000 bond earlier in the week and was free from custody in Shawnee County. That gave prosecutors more time to file charges.

The man was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon near his home, which is southwest of Clinton Lake. Authorities believe he led KHP troopers and officers with other agencies on a 30-minute chase from Topeka into Douglas County.

The Journal-World typically does not name criminal case suspects before charges have been filed.
