  • A man who was sought on a federal warrant is in custody after leading officers on a 72-mile chase through northwestern Kansas.
    The Colby Free Press reports the chase started Thursday morning after a state trooper tried to stop the man on Interstate 70 about 12 miles west of Colby.
    The driver dodged traffic spikes as he led officers on several highways between Colby and Oakley at speeds that reached 130 mph.
    Officers said the man briefly drove along railroad tracks in Colby and onto a street where he became boxed in by trees. He abandoned the car and was found under a pickup truck.
    Authorities say the man is from the greater Kansas City area and was being sought for violating supervised release on drug charges.
