It’s easy to prevent being a victim of car-related thefts. Here are some steps to help prevent your contents from being stolen from your vehicle.

Lancaster County Sheriff's deputies ended a low-speed chase Thursday night by blowing out the front tires of a pickup towing a motor home and arrested the driver, a 66-year-old Lincoln man.

Sheriff Terry Wagner said it started at about 10:45 p.m. when deputies were called to South 148th Street on the vehicle with no lights, a dangerous situation for traffic going the 55 mph speed limit.

A deputy spotted it near Yankee Hill Road and tried to stop it, but the driver wouldn't pull over, he said. The pickup led them on a pursuit at speeds of 5 to 15 mph for about 3 miles.

At 138th Street and Old Cheney Road, another deputy was able to put out stop sticks, used by law enforcement to deflate tires in a pursuit.

Wagner said it flattened the front tires on the pickup and one of the tires on the motor home and the vehicle stopped. They arrested Robert Oglesby for fleeing to avoid arrest.
