The Lawrence police department took a Lawrence man in custody after finding a pipe bomb in his vehicle when they searched it after a short car chase.

Lawrence police Sgt. Damon Thomas said around 11:30 p.m. a police officer tried to pull over a Toyota near the intersection of Clinton Parkway and Inverness Drive for a traffic violation.

The driver refused to stop and led officers on a short chase before bailing out of his vehicle near the intersection of Wakarusa Drive and Clinton Parkway. He then fled on foot, and police officers located a gun that they believe he discarded during the chase.

Officers searched the man’s vehicle and found a pipe bomb on the console.

Police officers later located the man, described as a white male with a short haircut, near the corner of Ninth and Mississippi Streets and took him into custody around 1 a.m.

As of 1:22 a.m. Sgt. Thomas said officers were still questioning the man.

Sure it was a pipe bomb and not a pipe and a bong? This is Lawrence after all.

I'm confused. He "bailed" at Wakarusa and Clinton Parkway and they located him at 9th and Mississippi? That's about 5 miles. So they were chasing him on foot that far?

Hopefully this is the same person who is setting all the fires in apartment complex laundries...and they stop him. My dad lived at Boardwalk when that crazy guy killed those people.
