SEDGWICK COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating a reported burglary and the resulting chase sent four suspects to the hospital.

Just after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, deputies were dispatched to a burglary in progress in the 8400 block of south West Street, according to Lt. Tim Myers with the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department.

The calling party, who was the neighbor, advised there were four subjects going in and out of the residence. Deputies responded to the scene. Upon the deputies checking out at the residence, the calling party advised the suspects were getting into a silver sedan. The sedan drove out of the driveway and headed south on West Street.


Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle and it fled. A vehicle pursuit ensued. The sedan turned left on to 87th Street south and continued east bound. A Tactical Vehicle Intervention (TVI) was authorized, according to Myers.

The pursuing deputy executed the TVI maneuver and the vehicle left the roadway, struck the ditch and rolled.

The driver of the vehicle was a Native American male. The remaining passengers were identified as a 28-year-old white female, a 24-year-old white male, and a 29-year-old white female.  All suspects were transported to St. Francis Hospital, according to Myers.

U.S. Attorney: Window tint job backfired on Kan. drug dealer

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas man whose auto windows were so darkly tinted that it gave police a reason to stop him was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in federal prison on a drug trafficking charge, according to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister.

Ty Stultz, 44, Shawnee, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Police in Kansas City, Kan., responded to a complaint that a man in a silver Cadillac was selling drugs at an apartment complex. They spotted Stultz driving out of the complex.

They found probable cause to stop him when they noticed that the one-way glass in his windows appeared to violate state law, which prohibits window tinting that blocks more than 35 percent of sunlight. In the car, officers found methamphetamine and a .40 caliber handgun. A records check determined Stultz had prior drug convictions.
