TIMKEN — Two juveniles wanted as runaways from a facility in Wichita were apprehended after a pursuit Monday night with law enforcement in Barton and Rush counties.

The juveniles were identified in a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report as Adam Alvin Isiaha Trostle, 16, Wichita, and Ryan D. Spence, 17, Hutchinson.

The pursuit started about 9:45 p.m. when Great Bend Police attempted to stop a 2001 Buick Lesabre driven by Ryan Alexander Hardey, 19, Durham. Police terminated the pursuit, but Barton County Sheriff’s deputies spotted the vehicle in the 1100 block of SW 20 Road, according to Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir.

Deputies pursued the vehicle for about 20 minutes, and the chase crossed into Rush County. The car slid into the south ditch and struck a utility pole at the intersection of 350th Avenue and Avenue X, about 8.5 miles southeast of Timken, shortly after 10 p.m., according to the KHP.

All three fled the vehicle. Trostle and Hardey were captured, while Spence escaped.

Trostle was taken to Great Bend Regional Hospital with minor injuries. Hardey was listed with possible injuries in the KHP report, but it did not indicate he was taken to the hospital.

Spence was picked up on a road near Larned shortly after 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, Bellendir said. He was wearing shorts and a hoodie.

The vehicle was confirmed stolen from Marion County. Hardey was arrested and faces charges of possession of stolen property, attempting to flee and elude, reckless driving, child endangerment and other traffic infractions, Bellendir said.

The Barton, Rush and Pawnee county sheriffs offices conducted the search overnight for Spence, assisted by members of the Albert Fire Department and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper, Bellendir said.
