Lengthy Chase Results in Felony Arrest of Belton Man
On Friday, Jan. 25, around 11:30 p.m., in the 500 block of N. Maguire, Warrensburg, Johnson County Deputies and Warrensburg Officers initiated a felony traffic stop on a box truck type vehicle.
The passenger, Brandon Duncan, age 38, of Belton, was wanted by the U.S. Marshals for Probation Violation-Weapons Charge.
As the vehicle came to a stop the operator of the vehicle exited without incident. Duncan failed to comply with officers and moved to the drivers seat of the vehicle. Duncan then fled the scene in the box truck. Johnson County Deputies, Warrensburg Officers and the Missouri State Highway Patrol pursued Duncan inside Warrensburg city limits, before Duncan continued westbound on US 50 highway.
Johnson County Deputies deployed stop sticks in the 1600 block of NW US 50 highway. Duncan struck the stop sticks and continued westbound on US 50 highway, into Jackson County. The Missouri State Highway Patrol then took over the pursuit.
The pursuit continued into Kansas City, Mo. During the pursuit Duncan crossed over into Kansas City, Kan., where the Kansas Highway Patrol took over the pursuit. A short time later Duncan crossed back into Missouri. The Missouri State Highway Patrol continued pursuing Duncan in the Kansas City area.
The Precision Immobilization Technique (PIT maneuver) was not used during the pursuit, due to the weight of the box truck Duncan was operating.
At approximately 1:55 a.m., Duncan came to a stop near Independence and Fremont, Kansas City, Mo.
Duncan was taken into custody by the Missouri State Highway Patrol for the active U.S.Marshals no bond warrant and placed on a 24 hour investigative hold for Resisting/interfering with arrest for a felony, Tampering with motor vehicle- 1st degree, Driving while revoked/suspended-1st offense and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. Duncan was then transported to the Johnson County jail.
