Police pursuit through Basehor ends in arrest

December 31, 2012

After a police pursuit through Basehor late Saturday night, Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office apprehended the suspect in Lansing.

Joshua Luttrell, 25 was headed west on Parallel Road at 11:30 p.m. when Basehor Police attempted to stop him for a traffic violation, Basehor Police Chief Lloyd Martley said. When the police officer turned on his lights, Luttrell took off, leading the police on a chase through town. Martley said Luttrell likely fled because he knew there was a felony probation warrant for his arrest.

Luttrell appeared to be unfamiliar with the area, Martley added, as he drove west on Parallel Road and turned into the Rickel addition near 155th Street. He then drove north on 155th Street and turned on Basehor Boulevard to Basehor Intermediate School, where he hit a curb and blew out a tire. Police continued to pursue Luttrell as he headed west on Basehor Boulevard and turned north on 155th Street, continuing toward Lansing, where he eventually was stopped and taken into custody by Leavenworth County Sheriff’s officers.

Kansas Highway Patrol and Lansing Police Department also was involved in the pursuit.
