Ohio robbery chase ends in area

An Albion woman suspected in an Edgerton, Ohio, bank robbery led police from Ohio and Indiana on a 90 mph chase Friday that ended with her arrest in a DeKalb County wheat field, the county sheriff’s department said.

Kelly Chaney, 47, was charged in Indiana with resisting law enforcement with a vehicle and possession of stolen property. She was being held in the DeKalb County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Charges related to the bank robbery in Ohio will be evaluated by Edgerton police and the FBI. Evidence of the robbery was in the vehicle Chaney was driving, police said

Edgerton police requested assistance about 12:30 p.m. in pursuit of a white Ford pickup that had been involved in a bank robbery. The truck, also pursued by Butler police, was headed west toward Butler when it turned south on DeKalb County Road 79 and west on County Road 40, police said.

At County Road 35, Auburn police deployed stop sticks east of the intersection, and the pickup turned right and cut through a tilled field. Indiana State Police joined in the pursuit when the vehicle entered County Road 35 going north. Officers later surrounded the vehicle in a wheat field, police said.

Waterloo police also were involved in the chase, police said.
