Two suspects run from the law. There were two separate incidents. One individual took off on foot; one individual sped away on a motorcycle.
---The motorcycle pursuit happened first on Thursday morning about 6:30am. According to reports from the Cass County Sheriff’s Department, a deputy attempted to stop a westbound motorcycle for speeding on Highway 66 near 120th Street. The motorcycle sped west through Louisville—where the cyclist just missed a collision with a pickup—and then proceeded northbound on Highway 50. Speeds of 100 to 130 mph were clocked, said Captain Dave Lamprecht. The pursuit went north to near Highway 370 where the deputy lost sight of the bike. The pursuit was called off.
The Cassgram reports authorities did get a license plate on the motorcycle and it is registered to a Plattsmouth man.
Sheriff’s deputies continued their investigation Friday morning at the residence of the registered owner and were attempting to contact him and locate the motorcycle. A definite identification of the driver is needed for charges to be filed and authorities were trying to determine if an ID could be made.
---The foot pursuit originated on the county fairgrounds at midnight Friday morning. The sheriff’s department received a report of a male-female disturbance. Law enforcement officers were on the grounds and the male ran away when they arrived. He was later apprehended. The 19-year-old suspect was booked into the Cass County Jail for fleeing from the deputies and for MIP. A police scanner report later in the day said the female was interested in filing charges against the male.
Call logs indicate there was also an investigation into the procurement of alcohol for the underage drinking.
