It was just after 8 Thursday morning, when a Winfield Police officer tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic infraction in the 1400 block of Bliss St. The driver had other ideas though, and fled east on 15th Ave at a high rate of speed. The pursuit ended when the officer stopped chasing the car in the 1400 block of John Street out of concern for public safety. The vehicle was later found in Winfield in the 1600 block of Pearl St. The driver then fled on foot, but a female passenger was detained. Officers from the Winfield Police Department as well as Deputies from the Cowley County Sheriff’s Office searched for the suspect but were unable to find him. The investigation is ongoing, but police say there is no immediate threat. So far, no names or other details have been released.
