PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — What started as an early morning auto theft turned into extended and wild police chase of a stolen FedEx truck on Wednesday evening. Police were finally able to stop and subdue the driver at 71st Terrace and Belinder, but not after multiple failed stops.
According to KCPD, a FedEx driver was fueling her company truck at a Shell Station located on 8801 NE Birmingham Road at about 8:45 a.m. The driver left the keys in the vehicle when she went inside the station and came out to find the truck had been stolen.
A witness at the gas station observed the suspect to be a white male in his early 20s. She thought he was acting suspiciously and kept an eye on him, but didn’t stop him when he got into the truck and drove away.
