High-Speed Pursuit Arrests

On September 22nd Bates County Deputies were notified of a pursuit coming into Bates County from Linn County, Kansas. Dispatch advised the Deputies that the vehicle being pursued was a white 2019 Ford F150 that was stolen from KCI airport. The pursuit headed north on County Road 10001 towards 18 highway where a Deputy deployed stop sticks hitting all four tires on the stolen vehicle. Shortly after the stop sticks were deployed the vehicle went through a fence and out into a field on the south side of 18 highway. Two subjects then fled from the vehicle.

After a short search, the K9 unit was able to take the male subject, identified as Bryan Bailes (DOB 1/27/1977) into custody. Another K9 unit was able to take the other female subject into custody. The female was identified as Mary Freeman-Appleton (DOB 1/22/1988).

Bailes was transported to the ER for medical treatment before he was turned over to the Jail.

Both subjects had warrants out of Wyandotte County, KS for burglary and theft. They currently remain in the Bates County Jail awaiting extradition hearings.
