ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. The Kay County, Oklahoma, Sheriff’s Office arrested an Arkansas City man Wednesday after he allegedly fled from the Arkansas City police earlier that day.

Lydell Adonis Loins, 24, was arrested on outstanding warrants. He was transported to and booked into the Kay County Jail in Newkirk, Oklahoma. Loins remained in custody at the time of this report.

He also 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 Arkansas City Police Department 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. Police discontinued the pursuit due to reaching unsafe speeds.

On Wednesday night, ACPD learned Loins was reported at one of the casinos just south of Arkansas City. They contacted tribal police, who contacted the Kay County Sheriff’s Office for assistance.

Kay County deputies were able to take Loins into custody without further incident.

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.

A defendant’s guilt or innocence is to be determined by a court of law.
