A recent suspect in a vehicle theft may have been fleet of foot, but apparently was not as fast as a Westbrook police officer.
According to Cottonwood County Sheriff Jason Purrington, Westbrook police received a report of a stolen vehicle on April 13. Deputies assisted with the case, which was linked to a theft in Lyon County.
Westbrook officers spotted the vehicle, a 2008 Ford F-350 pickup, and gave chase. It turned into a foot chase. A 23-year-old Garvin man, was arrested for vehicle theft.
