JACKSON COUNTY—Law enforcement authorities are investigating a Kansas man for alleged drug distribution after a chase.

Just after 3p.m. Monday a sheriff’s deputy attempted to stop a 2007 Nissan Infiniti for a traffic infraction near 222nd and K. Road in western Jackson County, according to sheriff Tim Morse.

The driver allegedly fled west then south. The deputy then lost sight of the vehicle.

A deputy in an unmarked vehicle located the Nissan once again near 190th and H. Road and continued to follow it.

Deputies were able to get the Nissan stopped at 198th and E. Road at approximately 3:27 p.m. when the driver, Joseph Douglas Keehn, 26, of Havensville, was arrested on requested charges of fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer, distribution of marijuana, no drug tax stamp and felony interference, according to Morse.

Keehn is being held in the Jackson County Jail.
