A high speed pursuit involving a stolen van early Thursday morning that began in Dickinson County ends about an hour later with an arrest in Russell County.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, shortly after 6:30 in the morning a trooper attempted to make a traffic stop for speeding on a van near the Solomon exit on Interstate 70. Rather than stop, the driver led officers on a 65 mile chase through Saline and Ellsworth Counties, and into Russell County. Sheriff deputies joined in as the chase went through Saline County.
The pursuit ended at about 7:30 just east of Dorrance.
After finally stopping, the driver resisted and was tased as he was taken into custody. His name was not immediately available.
Troopers say the van was stolen. The driver is being brought back to Dickinson County to face multiple charges that could include felony fleeing and eluding.
