SEDGWICK COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating a reported burglary and the resulting chase sent four suspects to the hospital.

Just after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, deputies were dispatched to a burglary in progress in the 8400 block of south West Street, according to Lt. Tim Myers with the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Department.

The calling party, who was the neighbor, advised there were four subjects going in and out of the residence. Deputies responded to the scene. Upon the deputies checking out at the residence, the calling party advised the suspects were getting into a silver sedan. The sedan drove out of the driveway and headed south on West Street.


Deputies attempted to stop the vehicle and it fled. A vehicle pursuit ensued. The sedan turned left on to 87th Street south and continued east bound. A Tactical Vehicle Intervention (TVI) was authorized, according to Myers.

The pursuing deputy executed the TVI maneuver and the vehicle left the roadway, struck the ditch and rolled.

The driver of the vehicle was a Native American male. The remaining passengers were identified as a 28-year-old white female, a 24-year-old white male, and a 29-year-old white female.  All suspects were transported to St. Francis Hospital, according to Myers.
