Man Arrested for Stolen Vehicle, Fleeing Police After White Co. Chase

WHITE CO. – A man was arrested Tuesday in White County after leading police on a chase in a stolen pickup truck.

According to White County Sheriff Doug Maier, the sheriff’s office learned about the truck, driven by Ryan C. Reynolds, with Illinois plates out of Mt. Vernon, IN traveling west on Indiana 62 toward Illinois 141.

Indiana authorities found the truck using a GPS locating device within the vehicle, and told White County Dispatch it was idle at 1225 County Road 1700 East.

Law enforcement in White County attempted a traffic stop, but Reynolds sped off along the edge of a field and the chase began through a large field and down a few county roads until the truck began having trouble with possible smoke on County Road 1700 East. Reynolds stopped the truck and was taken into custody. The vehicle was towed from the scene.

Reynolds was taken to the White County Jail, where he is held on charges of unlawful possession of a stolen vehicle and fleeing/attempting to elude police.
