Lansing police helped apprehend a suspect who was being pursued by law enforcement officers from outside of Leavenworth County, a police spokesman said.

Lansing police became involved in the pursuit around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

Lansing Police Chief Steve Wayman said officers from Kansas City, Kansas, and Edwardsville were pursuing a suspect who was driving north on Kansas 5 Highway.

Lansing officers set up tire deflation devices in the area of K-5 and Eisenhower Road. The devices caused passenger-side tires on the suspect’s vehicle to deflate.

The suspect reportedly turned onto Eisenhower Road. In the 300 block of East Eisenhower Road, the suspect reportedly abandoned his car and ran on foot, traveling north and northwest.

A Lansing officer spotted a man matching the suspect’s description in the area of the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant at 5041 S. Fourth St. in Leavenworth.

The officer confronted the man, who initially appeared as though he intended to run. But other law enforcement vehicles were arriving, and the suspect complied with the officer. The suspect was taken into custody, Wayman said.
