Cass Co – Around 4:45 pm today deputies with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop a vehicle on 2 Highway east of Harrisonville. The driver of a blue Chevy truck fled at a high rate of speed through Harrisonville and then north on I-49. Officers with Peculiar Police, Belton Police, Grandview Police Department and Missouri State Highway Patrol assisted with deploying tire deflation devices as the vehicle traveled north.
The assisting agencies were able to deflate several of the tires and allowed a Criminal Apprehension Unit equipped with a Grappler device to stop the vehicle on I-49 north of 150 Highway.
Two subjects were taken into custody. Deputies discovered suspected narcotics and a stolen firearm in the vehicle. Charges are pending in the case.
“We will continue to arrest dangerous criminals who victimize our community. Today multiple agencies working together on a regional radio system were able to successfully coordinate a response to this pursuit and take two subjects into custody without injury,” Sheriff Jeff Weber.
