  • A suspect is in custody in Harvey County following an early Saturday morning chase through three counties that ended safely in Pratt County.
    Around 4 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15, Harvey County Sheriff's Office requested Pratt County Sheriff's Office assistance with a high-speed chase that started in Harvey County and was moving through Reno County on K-61 headed for Pratt County.
    The suspect entered Pratt County traveling 120 mph on K-61 traveling southwest towards Pratt.
    A Pratt County Sheriff's officer successfully deployed stop sticks seven miles from Pratt then another officer got him again four miles from Pratt, said Pratt County Sheriff Vernon Chinn.
    Shortly after the last stop sticks were deployed, a Pratt County Sheriff's unit forced the vehicle off the road and the driver was taken into custody. A passenger in the vehicle was released with no charges.
    The officers and the suspect were not injured. Only the suspect vehicle was damaged.
    Harvey County officers took the suspect into custody on a variety of charges and transported the suspect back to Harvey County.
