High-speed chase in Saline County Saturday nightPosted by Jack Howser on Sunday, July 17th, 2011 @ 3:11 pm.
HARRISBURG—A local man is without his wallet (including his license and $93 cash) after he is alleged to have fled from officers attempting to stop him and took them on a high-speed chase at about 11:30 last night (07.16.11).
Scanner listeners reported to Disclosure this morning that a high-speed chase ensued at 11:22 p.m. last night, beginning in Harrisburg when a gold-colored Dodge pickup began reportedly running from the law.
Authorities noted that they were attempting to get stop sticks out to get the guy under control. However, it doesn’t appear that this took place, as the next report came in that, while headed west on old Highway 13, officers lost sight of the truck, despite squad cars being on every main road in the area. Within minutes, all involved in the chase had reported that by 11:27, all had lost sight of the pickup.
However, by 11:30, officers reported that they had the vehicle back in their sights, headed south on Mt. Moriah Road. By this time, Harrisburg police and Saline County deputies were joined by Carrier Mills police, according to scanner traffic.
Apparently the driver had opted to abandon his vehicle, and was called in as being on foot on Mt. Moriah and Joy roads. A wrecker was called at 11:31 p.m. to retrieve the truck.
The subject remained “on foot” all the way up to 11:50, according to status checks.
At 12:10 p.m., still not having located the subject, authorities called in that they had found a wallet in the truck belonging to a Randy L. Price, whose driver’s license, officers learned, was suspended.
Also in the wallet was $93 cash…which is apparently being held as evidence, perhaps until Price shows up (if indeed it was he who was driving) to reclaim it….if he’s allowed to have it back at all. More as we get it….keep checking back.
