Suspect Sought Following Two County Pursuit

(KMZA)--A Topeka teen is in custody, but the search for the driver of a stolen vehicle involved in a two county pursuit, remains on the run.

According to the Nemaha County Sheriff's Office, the Wednesday evening pursuit began in Marshall County, but continued on U. S. Highway 36, in Nemaha County, where deputies attempted to stop the suspect vehicle as it traveled on U.S. Highway 36.

The driver left the highway and headed southbound on B road, traveling into a field until the vehicle could go no further.

That's when two suspects fled on foot, leaving the 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe, reported stolen in Cuba, Kansas, behind.

Authorities say the suspects are blamed for another vehicle theft, happening a short time later at 261 124th Road, in Baileyville, where a 2014 Dodge truck was taken.

Leaving the scene in the stolen vehicle, heading south and east with multiple law enforcement agencies again in pursuit, the truck crashed near 6th and Mulberry Streets in Centralia.

It was there a 17-year old from Topeka, identified as the lone passenger in the stolen truck, was taken into custody, and now faces charges of burglary and theft.

The driver fled the scene on foot and has not yet been found.

Early Thursday morning, another vehicle was reported stolen, believed to have been taken sometime after 10:15 Wednesday night from 518 Commercial Street, in Centralia.

Authorities say they are now seeking information pertaining to the whereabouts of the gray, 2014 Ford F250 with a fuel barrel, and other tools, in the back. A firearm was also inside the truck at the time that it was stolen.

Anyone with information related to the crime is urged to call the Nemaha County Sheriff's Office.
