Haybale-laden truck thief eludes law enforcement



July 28, 2017 - 12:00 AM

Authorities remained on the lookout Friday for a suspect they said stole a pickup and led officers on a high-speed chase that roared through Iola and wound up in rural Bourbon County Thursday afternoon.

Allen County Sheriff Bryan Murphy said the incident started when John Kramer — who had been out working in the field — saw his pickup, loaded with a hay bale, being driven away from near the intersection of South Carolina Road and 400 Street.

He alerted authorities who raced to the area, and spotted the vehicle, “and the chase was on,” Murphy said.
