NEWKIRK — Kay County deputies arrested a Wichita, Kan. man Wednesday after he allegedly fled from the Arkansas City police earlier that day, according to a news release from the ACPD Friday.

Lydell Adonis Loins, 23, Wichita, Kan. was arrested on a drug warrant and pending charges at First Council Casino. He was transported to and booked into the Kay County Dention Center. 

Loins is wanted by Ark City police on suspicion of driving with a revoked driver’s license and fleeing and eluding. Reports will be forwarded to the Cowley County Attorney’s Office for possible charges.

An ACPD officer on Wednesday observed Loins, who was known to have a warrant for his arrest through Cowley County District Court, driving a black Toyota in the 100 block of North C Street. Loins was approached by police, but he ran away westbound toward an alley.

Police pursued him down the alley, at which time he ran back toward the vehicle and entered it.

Loins then drove southbound in the 100 block of North D Street and was pursued by police all the way to the 1000 block of South Summit Street, discontinuing the pursuit due to reaching unsafe speeds.

On Wednesday night, ACPD learned Loins was reported at one of the casinos just south of Ark City. They contact tribal police, who contacted KSO for assistance. According to Kay County Sheriff Logs, at 7:24 p.m. KSO received a report that Loins was at First Council Casino and that he was banned from the property. Deputy Kyle Colclasure responded and Loins was arrested.

In the meantime, police also followed up on a witness report from earlier in the day that Loins had been observed allegedly hiding something behind a piece of wood in the area where the chase began. They searched the area and found a loaded 9-millimeter handgun.
