Deputies canceled a vehicle pursuit near Basehor for safety reasons, but officers believe they know the identity of the driver, according to an official with the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office.

And another person who was connected to the incident was taken into custody for an unrelated arrest warrant, Undersheriff Jim Sherley said.

The incident was reported at 4:21 p.m. Thursday in the area of Kansas 16 Highway near Tonganoxie. The Sheriff’s Office received a report of a disturbance in a vehicle that was traveling in the area.

Deputies who were responding to the call located a 31-year-old Tonganoxie woman who was walking on a roadway.

Sherley said the woman is believed to have been involved in the disturbance, but she had exited the vehicle. She was arrested for a warrant that had been issued through district court, according to Sherley.

A deputy located the suspect’s vehicle east of Tonganoxie, and the pursuit ensued as the vehicle traveled east on U.S. 24-40 toward Basehor.

The pursuit was called off for safety reasons as the suspect’s vehicle approached busy intersections in the Basehor area.

Deputies will pursue possible charges against the driver through the Leavenworth County Attorney’s Office.
