Sedgwick County Sheriff's deputies were involved in chase with the driver of a stolen car.
It began shortly after 3 p.m. Sunday when a deputy spotted someone driving a 1998 Chevy Monte Carlo near Murdock and Cleveland, which had been stolen during a burglary in Wichita.
The deputies tried to stop the driver, but he sped away. He lead deputies on a chase down southbound I-135 to the south junction, then onto northbound I-235.
Deputies used stop sticks at i-235 and K-42 which deflated the suspect's right front tire. The car became incapacitated at 235 and Kellogg and the driver was taken into custody.
Deputies soon learned the driver had swallowed methamphetamine, so he was taken by EMS to the hospital. The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Everett Cunningham of Wichita, was booked into jail on charges of possession of stolen property, criminal possession of a firearm, unlawful possession controlled substances, DUI and flee and allude.
Deputies also found property inside of the car they believe was stolen and the Cunningham is either connected to recent burglaries or was driving a vehicle that was used in the burglaries.
The stolen items include jewelry and firearms. Investigators are working to determine where and when the items were stolen.
