The suspect’s vehicle traveled a number of miles before the pursuit ended in the 69000 block of Blue School Road. The 40-year-old suspect, whose community of residence was not stated in a department media release, fled on foot.

Deputies apprehended the subject after a short foot pursuit. He was wanted on several outstanding warrants and was charged with fleeing and eluding, resisting and obstructing, and possession of methamphetamine.
