JACKSON COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating a Kansas man and a juvenile following a high-speed chase.

Just before 5 p.m. Friday, a deputy sheriff attempted to stop a vehicle for a traffic infraction near 158th and R. Road on the south edge of Mayetta, according to Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse.

The vehicle then fled northbound through the City of Mayetta and north on R. Road.

The vehicle came to a T intersection at 182nd Road where the vehicle slid off the roadway into a muddy field. The vehicle managed to exit the field and went west on 182nd Road and met deputies east of Highway 75 on 182nd Road.

The vehicle came to a stop and the four occupants surrendered to law enforcement. Two of the vehicle’s occupants were taken into custody. The driver, a juvenile, was arrested for possession of a hallucinogenic drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, felony fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer and reckless driving, according to Morse.

In addition, the juvenile had been entered as a missing person and had an outstanding felony warrant out of Shawnee County for vehicle burglary and theft of a firearm.

The adult identified as Dathan Aaron Horn, 18, of Topeka was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. The two remaining occupants were released at the scene.

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.
