Salina Police apprehend a man wanted for fleeing and eluding law enforcement officers.
According to Master Patrol Officer Brent Rupert, information given to police led officers to set up surveillance around a residence in the 1400 block of Arapahoe Friday around 11:40am.
Police were looking for 25-year-old Mathew Leach – who back in April allegedly led police on a chase that reached speeds of 80 mph before officers called off the pursuit for safety concerns.
Police arrested Leach around 12:50pm on Friday after he exited through the back door of the house.
Police say Leach was wanted on numerous felony warrants including possession of methamphetamine.
