(KNZA)--A Horton man is in custody following two early Monday morning chases.

Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse said 34-year-old Michael Dorsch was arrested by Jackson County Sheriff's deputies on multiple charges.

Around 1:00 Monday morning, a Shawnee County deputy ended a pursuit with a vehicle that was suspected to be involved in vehicle burglaries as it moved into Jackson County.

A short time later, a Jackson County Sheriff's deputy found the car—abandoned and still running—crashed into a ditch north of 102nd and S Roads. The vehicle, a 2002 Toyota Camry, had been reported stolen out of Silver Lake.

Around 2:00, Morse said deputies noticed a 2017 Volkswagen in the area. Deputies believed the vehicle was in the area to pickup the driver of the Camry.

A pursuit ensued on 102nd Road and ended on P.4 Road after the car rolled.

Two passengers in the vehicle were evaluated at area hospitals. Morse said it was determined the 2017 Volkswagen had been reported stolen out of Lawrence, and the tag on the vehicle was stolen from a residence in Shawnee County.

Dorsch was booked into the Jackson County Jail on charges of felony possession of stolen property, possession of stolen property, fleeing and eluding a law enforcement officer, interference with law enforcement, two counts of aggravated battery, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while suspended.

Morse said Dorsch is known to Jackson County law enforcement from a variety of pursuits and manhunts throughout the years.

The incident remains under investigation.
