Two Suspects Captured After Pursuit

On Monday October 1, around 9:15 pm a Cass County K9 Unit responded to the area of Towne Center Drive after hearing reports of a shoplifting from Kohl's Department Store. The deputy arrived in the area and located two subjects loading clothing into a car parked in the middle of the roadway with no lights on. The deputy attempted to stop the subjects who got into the vehicle and fled at a high rate of speed.

Belton Police were able to successfully deploy a tire deflation device on the suspect vehicle as it fled northbound on I-49 at E. 163rd St deflating 3 tires.

The vehicle exited 150 Hwy and I-49 where the driver fled on foot from the vehicle. The Cass County Sheriff's Deputy who was pursuing deployed his K9 and apprehended the driver. A passenger was taken into custody without incident.

The driver was treated and released at the scene by Kansas City Fire Department. Both suspects were transported to the Belton Jail. Charges are pending at this time.
