SILVER LAKE, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been arrested after a pair of police chases in northeast Kansas.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that it started when a driver fled from Shawnee County sheriff’s deputies in a stolen Toyota Camry. The Camry then was found crashed early Monday in a ditch in neighboring Jackson County.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse says no one was around the Camry. Deputies then spotted a stolen Volkswagen and suspected it was there to pick up the driver of the crashed Camry.

Another pursuit began and ended with the driver rolling on an icy road. The driver and passenger were treated at area hospitals before the driver was booked into jail.

Morse says the Volkswagen had been reported stolen from Lawrence and the Camry from Silver Lake.
