OLATHE, Kan. - A Kansas City, Mo., man accused of fleeing from police in a stolen FedEx delivery truck faces charges in Kansas and Missouri. Nineteen-year-old Caleb Ownby said he understood the charge when he made his first appearance Thursday in Johnson County, Kan., District Court on a felony theft charge. He also was charged in Jackson County, Mo., Circuit Court with fleeing, tampering with a motor vehicle and driving without a license.
Online court records said Ownby planned to hire an attorney for the Kansas case. No attorney was listed in the Missouri case. Ownby was arrested early Wednesday evening in Prairie Village, Kan., after police used a tire-puncturing device to flatten some of the vehicle's tires. The pursuit began in southeast Kansas City and wound through residential neighborhoods and along highways.
