ANDOVER, Kan. (AP) -- A parolee suspected in recent burglaries has been found in a south-central Kansas pond days after a police chase.

KWCH (http://is.gd/0xIdh4 ) reports that Nicholas Vampran had recently been paroled after serving four years for several crimes, including burglary. On Wednesday, Derby Police chased the 35-year-old into southern Butler County, where he ditched a stolen pickup truck and ran into a field.

His body was discovered Sunday in a pond and was identified Monday. An autopsy determined he drowned.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says he suspects Vampran was trying to hide from the tracking dogs in the water and suffered from hypothermia in the cold water. Herzet says friends told authorities that Vampran wasn't going back to prison.
