September 29 the Chillicothe Police began investigation of a stolen vehicle from a parking lot in the 1000 block of Graves Street.  That vehicle was recovered on September 30 in Caldwell County and the Caldwell County Sheriff reported a pickup stolen from the same area in Caldwell County.  The stolen pickup was later reported to be in Hamilton but was not located by law enforcement.

Last evening around 6:30 p.m. law enforcement here was alerted the stolen pickup was observed in Chillicothe.  A short while later Chief Deputy Claypole observed the stolen pickup being driven in a dangerous manner and then attempted to stop the vehicle which continued on driving in a dangerous manner.  Law Enforcement from Chillicothe Police, Missouri State Highway Patrol and LCSO attempted to stop the vehicle in multiple locates and the driver chose to resist arrest by flight and nearly struck a state trooper head on.  A short while later the vehicle stopped off the roadway due to a flat front tire and being unable to continue.  

Arrested was Mikall Ryan Foster, 29, Chillicothe for alleged Tampering with Motor Vehicle-1st degree, Assault on Law Enforcement Officer, Resisting Arrest, Possession of Methamphetamine and the Chillicothe Police have an additional charge of alleged Tampering with a Motor Vehicle-1st degree.  Caldwell County is expected to have charge(s) on Mr. Foster as well for the alleged auto theft in their county.  

Mr. Foster was interviewed at the Law Enforcement Center and reportedly admitted to having stolen the vehicle from the 1000 block of Graves while looking for items to steal from parked vehicles.  That he drove that vehicle to a location in Caldwell County where that stolen car was abandoned and the pickup was stolen.  Suspect reportedly admitted to injecting methamphetamine twice yesterday and claimed the syringe with substance in it on his person upon arrest was methamphetamine and that syringe was used for injecting the meth.  Mr. Foster was taken to Daviess Dekalb Regional Jail on 24-hour hold pending filing of formal charges.  Investigation continues.

The various officers and dispatchers worked very well as a team in getting this dangerous person stopped.  It was obvious this man was driving dangerous before law enforcement even attempted to stop him and the arrest may have prevented other serious issues.
