September 13, 2000

Leavenworth County Sheriff
A vehicle driven by Michael Rhodes, 15, was traveling on Leavenworth County Road 16 about 12:20 a.m. Sept. 3 when his vehicle left the road and struck a cement culvert. The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Rhodes was taken by private vehicle to St. John Hospital and passenger Paul Langley, 17, was taken to Cushing Memorial Hospital. They were both treated and released, sheriff's reports said.

A vehicle driven by Charles Lombardino, 45, Bonner Springs, was traveling east on Kansas Highway 32 about 6:45 a.m. Thursday when a deer ran out in the road. He hit the deer, causing more than $500 damage to the vehicle, sheriff's reports said.

A 2-year-old Tonganoxie girl was reported missing by father Keith Cardin, Tonganoxie, about 3:30 p.m. Thursday. According to the report, the girl wandered from her home in the 21000 block of 219th Street while being watched by an older sibling. The search lasted for three hours. The child was found unharmed at neighbors' house about a half-mile south of her home.

A 3-year-old boy was reported missing from a residence in the 200 block of Kickapoo, Easton, by father James McManigle about 5:10 p.m. Thursday. The child was found 45 minutes later at his home, reports said.

A vehicle driven by Adam Chambley, 25, Taylorville, Ill., was traveling south on Kansas Highway 16 about 1 a.m. Sunday when it collided with a vehicle driven by Victoria Metzger, 35, Oskaloosa, which was traveling north on 234th Street. Both vehicles were a total loss. Metzger was not injured but Chambley was taken by LifeNet helicopter to Kansas University Medical Center, where he was reported in fair condition, reports said.

A vehicle driven by Beverly Foley, 52, Leavenworth, was traveling west on Leavenworth County Road 26 when her vehicle broke down about 11:55 p.m. Monday night. A vehicle driven by Dennis Huff, 37, Linwood, rear-ended Foley's vehicle. He then fled from the scene by foot and was apprehended by a sheriff's officer. Foley was taken to Shawnee Mission Medical Center for possible neck and back injuries and was released. Both vehicles were a total loss, reports said.

Tonganoxie police
A flatbed trailer pulled by a pickup truck driven by Gregory Scheilz, 36, Tonganoxie, unhooked last Friday morning as he was traveling on 218th Street. The trailer went through a ditch, hit a utility pole and struck the porch of a house in the 400 block of North Main.

During a routine vehicle stop about 9 p.m. Sept. 5, Tonganoxie police arrested a driver after finding what they believed to be a controlled substance. The incident occurred along U.S. Highway 24-40 at the bridge over Leavenworth County Road 5.

Police are investigating what appears to be an attempted break-in last Thursday in the 1100 block of Delaware Drive. Police said it appeared someone tried to kick in a door.

Police say they have a suspect in the theft of more than $3,700 in cash from Petrol Pantry, Fourth and U.S. Highway 24-40. "It occurred over a period of time, two to three months," said police Sgt. John Putthoff. The theft was reported last Wednesday.
