A stolen vehicle report led to a chase near Strother Field on Thursday and the arrest of two women.
Paris Lolar, 25, and Kyesha Walker, 31, were transported to the Cowley County Jail, Lolar was held on a $12,900 bond and Walker on a $2,000 bond.
Lolar is facing possible charges of attempted flee and elude, reckless driving, possession of stolen property, interference with the judicial process and driving while under the influence. Walker is facing possible charges that include possession of stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A Cowley County Sheriff’s deputy responded to the 19000 block of U.S. 77 Highway for a stolen vehicle reported leaving Winfield. The deputy located the vehicle around 7:10 p.m. in the 21000 block of U.S. 77 and attempted a traffic stop when the vehicle failed to pull over, according to a sheriff’s report.
Law enforcement chased the white Ford Edge through Strother Field, continuing west on 222nd Road. Cowley County Sheriff Dave Falletti could not confirm the rate of speed during the pursuit, but 222nd Road was recently washed out and in very poor condition for even normal traffic.
Deputies followed on 222nd Road, then traveled north on 31st Road for a few miles before the SUV crashed on the west side of the road, in the 20000 block.
Lolar fled the vehicle and hid in the forest west of 31st Road but was quickly taken into custody, Falletti confirmed. Walker was taken into custody without incident where the vehicle crashed.
The report states Lolar was driving. She has a long arrest record before this incident, including alleged assault with a deadly weapon, flee and elude and multiple counts of failure to appear in court.
No injuries were reported and both remained in custody on Friday.
