Driver of stolen vehicle leads police on 25-mile pursuit

Operation 100 News report

A Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper attempted to stop a vehicle in north Lawrence early Sunday. The driver of that vehicle didn't stop and ended up leading police on a 25-mile pursuit through parts of three counties.

Around 12:20 a.m. a Trooper reported spotting a vehicle that had been reported stolen from an address in Lawrence, and attempted to stop the vehicle, near Interstate 70 and North Third Street. The driver sped up and the chase was on. A nearby Lawrence officer joined the pursuit as they turned eastbound on U.S. 24.

Speeds reached 70 miles per hour as they passed Lawrence Municipal Airport and then turned eastbound on Kansas Highway 32, crossing into Leavenworth County.

The Trooper reported speeds of 80 miles per hour as they approached Linwood city limits.

As the chase crossed into Wyandotte County and the city of Bonner Springs, officers with the Bonner Springs Police Department were able to hit three of the suspect vehicle's tires with spike strips.

Speeds dropped to the 55 miles per hour speed limit as the chase continued through the eastside of Bonner Springs, still on K-32.

The chase came to an end about a mile inside Edwardsville city limits, at mile marker 22, just before 12:50 a.m.. The Lawrence officer and the Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper were then able to take the driver into custody without further resistance.

Lawrence Police confirmed that the vehicle was stolen. The Trooper learned that the driver has a felony warrant for his arrest out of Leavenworth County and does not have a valid driver's license.

After about 10 minutes in custody, the suspect requested an ambulance, because he wasn't feeling well. An ambulance from the Kansas City, Kansas Fire Department responded, but did not transport the man to the hospital. The Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper transported the man back to Lawrence and Lawrence Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says no officer were injured and no police vehicles were damaged during the pursuit.

Consecutive mornings with a vehicle pursuit in Lawrence

Monday into Tuesday pursuit

A 22-year-old, Baldwin City man led Lawrence Police on a high speed car chase that ended in a brief foot chase on the Haskell University campus.

The chase started around 11:50 p.m. Monday near 22nd Street and Louisiana when a Lawrence officer attempted to make a traffic stop on a white Chevrolet Impala. The driver sped away from the officer, eastbound on 21st Street at a high rate of speed. The officer gave chase and followed the vehicle for a short time before losing sight of the suspect vehicle near 21st Street and Vermont Street.

Other officers responded to the area to help look for the vehicle. One of those officers spotted the vehicle driving in excess of 100 MPH while southbound on Barker Avenue approaching 23rd Street. That officer reported skid marks on the pavement near 22nd and Barker.

Officers moved onto the Haskell University campus and began setting up a perimeter to box in the vehicle. The vehicle was found crashed and abandoned in a grassy common area just north of Oneida Avenue. Officers found that the vehicle had struck several objects, including a sign for one of the buildings and a light pole.

The man spotted a Lawrence Police patrol car spotlighting the area and took off on foot northbound towards the stadium. Officers apprehended him about 200 yards south of the stadium at about 12:05 a.m.. Tuesday. Officers backtracked through the area and located several locations where the vehicle left the roadway and caused damage to property.

Medics eventually transported the man to Lawrence Memorial Hospital to be checked out after he became nauseous and vomited. No other injuries were reported.

He has since been booked into the Douglas County jail and faces a slew of charges including; flee/attempt to elude, reckless driving, driving while suspended, possession of a controlled substance and several counts of leaving the scene and failure to report an accident.

Wednesday morning pursuit

This morning's pursuit involved a 23-year-old, Lawrence man who attempted to flee from officers in a vehicle. Just after 12:40 a.m., an officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop near W. 7th and S. Michigan Streets. Instead of stopping, the driver turned off all of the vehicle's lights and quickly turned into the Hawks Pointe apartment complex in the 1400 block of W. 7th Street. Officers kept up and were able to apprehend the man before he had a chance to run from the vehicle. The driver has now been booked into the Douglas County jail and faces charges of flee/attempt to elude and driving while intoxicated. No injuries were reported.

    • 16 Vehicle stops
    • 14 Disturbances
    • 4 Noise complaints
    • 1 Trespassing complaint

    At 3:45 a.m., Police were called to Magic Lounge, 804 W. 24th Street, on reports of a large disturbance. One caller reported approximately 30 men fighting at the address. The caller believed that one of the men was carrying and had possibly displayed a handgun during the fight. Initially three officers were dispatched on the call, a total of seven units were eventually committed to the call. Those officers did not report any injuries or arrests.

    With all of the car stops reported, the county booking log shows only one arrest for DWI. That arrest was made by the Sheriff's Office around 4:30 a.m. at 6th and Stoneridge.

    Deputies also made three arrests at the same vehicle stop on K-10 near Eudora. One of the subjects faces a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge, the second subject faces a misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance charge and is accused of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The third subject faces a charge for possession of stolen property.

    The booking log only shows one arrest for Lawrence Police. That came shortly after midnight involving a 20-year-old Lawrence man who faces charges for criminal damage to property, possession/use of a fake Driver's License, and possession of alcohol by a minor.

    Car chase begins in N. Lawrence, ends 35 minutes later near Topeka

    Authorities from at least five law enforcement agencies were involved in a lengthy pursuit early this morning.

    Around 2:10 a.m., police from Lawrence and Topeka attempted to stop a white 2001 GMC Jimmy that was northbound on N. 2nd Street near Lincoln Street. The driver chose to flee and the chase was on.

    Douglas County Deputies joined the pursuit as the vehicle sped passed TeePee Junction, intersection of U.S. Highways 24-59 and 24-40. The chase continued northbound on U.S. Highway 24-40 with speeds reaching 70 miles per hour.

    As the pursuit passed Midland Junction and entered Jefferson County, at least one of their deputies joined the pursuit. Speeds ranged from 45-70 miles per hour while continuing westbound on U.S. Highway 24.

    A Jefferson County Deputy was able to get in front of the pursuit and laid spike strips near Decatur Road, just east of Grantville. The vehicle hit the spike strips, shredding at least one tire.

    Shawnee County Deputies and more Topeka Police officers joined the pursuit as they entered Shawnee County and eastern Topeka. A Deputy spiked the vehicle a second time near Kansas Highway 4. The second set of spike strips damaged the remaining tires on the vehicle.

    After striking a bridge guardrail and making a U-turn into the eastbound lanes of U.S. Highway 24, the vehicle became stuck in the grassy median. The driver and a passenger were taken into custody just east of Kaw Valley Road in eastern Topeka at 2:46 a.m..

    No injuries were reported in the chase that spanned about 27 miles, across parts of three counties and lasted 35 minutes.

    The driver is reportedly the suspect that Topeka Police were in Lawrence looking for this morning. As of this report there is no official confirmation as to what that man was wanted for.

    Check back with this report and the Lawrence Journal-World for updates as new information becomes available.

The person who called police reported that after crossing the river, the vehicle returned to the correct side of the road and then entered the turnpike, where the caller lost sight of the vehicle. Kansas Turnpike Authority Troopers were informed of the vehicle description and earlier offense. It did not sound like Troopers were able to locate that vehicle.

    Just before 1:40 a.m., police were called to investigate a disturbance near 11th and Massachusetts Streets. The caller reported that he had been thrown on the ground and then kicked. Medics treated the victim for some minor injuries at the scene. He was not transported by medics. It was unclear if the man knew his attacker or not. No arrests were reported.

    5 arrests this morning in Douglas County; 3 for DWI/OUI related offenses.

    Here is a look at some of the calls that Lawrence Police responded on this morning.

    • 5 Disturbance/Battery reports
    • 4 Car stops
    • 2 Noise complaints
    • 1 Trespassing complaint
    • 1 Indecent exposure complaint
    • 1 Criminal damage report

    Most of this morning's disturbances were on the smaller side, two or three people fighting/arguing. The one exception to this came at an address that Lawrence Police are beginning to become familiar with lately. They were called around 1:20 a.m. to an apartment in the 3300 block of W 8th Street, following reports of an argument that was possibly escalating into a fight. A total of six units were eventually attached to the call. Officers spoke to the involved parties and after checking everyone involved for warrants, returned to service from the call without making any arrests. No injuries were reported. This same address and apartment number have been the location for at least two previous calls, in recent memory during my listening hours.

    Aside from the three DWI/OUI related arrests, there were two other arrests. The first involved a domestic disturbance with one of the involved now facing charges of domestic battery and violation of a protective order. The second arrest involved a theft in the 1300 block of Tennessee Street. That suspect now faces charges of theft and interference with the duties of an officer.

    None of this morning's activity was reported to have involved any serious injuries.

    11 disturbances and the second morning in a row with a strong-arm robbery

    This morning's numbers are just a little bit different from yesterday morning. Lawrence police conducted 10 vehicle stops between midnight and 5 a.m.. Only two DWI related arrests this morning, one from KUPD and one from LPD, and both of those also include charges for the driver refusing to be tested.

    Here is a look at some of the numbers from Lawrence Police this morning;

    • 11 Disturbances
    • 2 Noise complaints
    • 2 Non-injury accidents
    • 1 Trespassing complaint
    • 1 Strong-arm robbery

    At 12:20 this morning, Eudora Police and a Douglas County deputy were called to check for an erratic driver eastbound on K-10 approaching Eudora. A 911 caller was following the vehicle and reported the driver was all over the roadway and possibly left the roadway entirely at one point. The caller followed the vehicle to the Church Street exit and then north. Eudora Police caught up with the driver at the Kwik Shop. No arrests were recorded related to the incident.

    Just after 12:40 a.m., Lawrence police were called to an address in the 600 block of Michigan Street on a domestic disturbance. A man was eventually arrested and faces charges of criminal damage to property and escape from custody. While he was being transported to the County Jail apparently he was trying to open the door of the patrol car that was transporting him. It was not clear if he slipped his cuffs completely, was able to get his hand in front of him or what exactly prompted the escape charge. The officer driving the car did call for assistance at K-10 and Franklin, about a block from the jail for help detaining the subject again.

    At 1:15 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road for a possible burglary in progress. The resident reported an unknown male in his 20's opened the front screen door of the home and then tried to open the main door. After finding the front door was locked, the man then made his way to the resident's vehicle parked nearby and tried to open the doors. Police arrived and the man was arrested for criminal trespassing and an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in municipal court.

    Officers were called to the intersection of 9th and Massachusetts Street at 2:45 a.m. following reports of a fight in progress, and one subject with a bloody nose. Medics were also dispatched to stage in the area. After breaking up the fight, medics treated one person for what were described as minor injuries.

    A Mil-Spec security officer called Lawrence Police at 2:50 a.m., to the 1000 block of W 23rd Street after witnessing a non-injury accident. Apparently Mil-Spec told dispatchers that they were detaining the driver after she attempted to flee from the scene of a collision with a parked vehicle. LPD arrived and eventually arrested the driver. She now faces charges her second DWI, in addition to refusing a test and no proof of liability insurance.

    At 4:55 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the Dillon's at 1015 W. 23rd Street following the strong-arm theft of nine cartons of cigarettes. The suspect, described as a heavy set black female, reportedly shoved an employee to get to the cigarettes and then fled in a red Buick passenger car. According to scanner traffic, it appeared that officers have had similar incidents with a suspect vehicle matching this description. It was unclear if the actual suspect description matched or just the vehicle.
