A 50-year-old Wichita man was taken to the Harvey County Jail after he led law enforcement officers on a chase from Harvey County into Sedgwick County.
Harvey County Sheriff Sergeant Scott Motes said just after 3 a.m., a deputy tried to stop a Ford Explorer for a traffic violation at Southwest 96th and Anderson. The chase went south on Seneca, east to Broadway, then over to I-135 where the vehicle hit some stop sticks placed on the roadway by a Sedgwick County Sheriff deputy.
"The tires were still partially aired up when he came to a stop," said Motes. "But he safely rolled to a stop on the interstate and surrendered at that point."
The car stopped just north of the I-135/I-235 junction.
After stopping the vehicle, deputies found equipment that is often used to steal anhydrous ammonia, including a breather, goggles, a tank and gloves. The chemical is commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Motes said law enforcement officers from Sedgwick County, Maize, Park City, Valley Center and Wichita assisted Harvey County Deputies in the chase.
