MECKLENBERG COUNTY, Virginia -

Virginia authorities have arrested a man wanted for eluding law enforcement in South Central Kansas.

WSET-TV reports that William Jason Roberts was arrested by Mecklenburg County authorities Friday night.

The local sheriff's office believed he had been in the area since Wednesday and was found in a stolen vehicle.

On Aug 2, he led police on a chase in several counties. North Newton police said Roberts led them in a chase in a rented Camaro down I-135 at 100+ mph. They used stop sticks to disable his vehicle, but he fled to a field near Kechi and they lost his location.

He was previously wanted for several crimes, including assault, near Aurora, Colorado.

Roberts is a former Special Ops Marine.
