Vehicular pursuits on Sunday and Monday ended with two men being booked into the Barton County Jail.
At 3:29 a.m. Sunday, Jason Kramer, Ellis, reportedly led a Barton County Sheriff’s Office deputy on a pursuit that began in the 300 block of NW 60 Ave. After being apprehended, he was booked into the jail on Barton County charges of flee and elude, reckless driving and driving while suspended, and a Great Bend warrant for failure to appear. He was released after posting a $5,000 surety bond for the Barton County charges and a $500 court/surety bond for the municipal warrant.
At 3:28 p.m. Monday, a Great Bend Police officer attempted to stop Jacob Wilson, Great Bend, on 24th St. for an outstanding warrant. Wilson reportedly refused to stop and was pursued into the county. The BCSO took up the pursuit, and the vehicle was stopped in the 10 block of NW 50 Road a few minutes later. Wilson was booked into the jail on charges of felony flee and elude, reckless driving, speeding, exhibition of speed, two counts of running a stop sign, and criminal damages to property, with bond set at $5,000. He was also booked on a Reno County warrant for probation violation, with bond set at $750, and his bond was revoked on a 2012 Barton County case for reckless driving; that bond was set for $500.
