Man Arrested after Wrecking Stolen Truck

KSAL StaffAugust 26, 2014

A Topeka man who stole a work truck in Salina is caught by the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Police say two Landscape Consultants employees were on a lunch break at the McDonald’s on Ohio and Crawford on Monday afternoon – when they noticed a company truck stopped at the intersection was operated by a driver they did not recognize.

When they approached the vehicle the driver sped away.

A high speed pursuit began when a Saline County Sheriff’s Deputy spotted the vehicle near Simpson Road and Crawford.

Authorities say 29-year-old Steven M. Rule crashed the vehicle over an embankment on Country Club Road and then fled on foot.

KHP Troopers caught Rule a short time later.

Police say the truck was stolen from a work site in the 1200 block of Faith just after noon.

The Ford F-350 is valued at $10,000.
