Three individuals in a black, 2004 Mustang GT convertible stolen in Fort Worth, Texas are now in custody in Cimarron County's jail after a high-speed chase Wednesday afternoon.
Daniel Taylor, Joshua Allen Braun and Sarah Faith Raines, each face a variety of charges stemming from the pursuit which began six miles southwest of Keyes.
According to Keyes Police Officer and Cimarron County Deputy Larry Taylor, the chase began at about 1:30 p.m. after the trio had eaten lunch at the Four-Corners Cafe. At that time, they told the proprietor that they had no money with which to pay for the food..
“She told them that it was OK, they could pay for the food when they passed back through,” Taylor said. According to Taylor at that point one of the individuals mentioned that they were driving a stolen car. The Cimarron County Sheriff's Office was notified when the vehicle left in a westerly direction.
On the lookout, Taylor spotted what he thought was the stolen Mustang about three miles west of State Highway 171, on Federal Highway 64.
He clocked the Mustang at 83 miles-per-hour in a 65 MPH zone. The chase was on.
Taylor pursued the vehicle to Boise City and over the overpass, where Daniel Taylor, the driver spotted Boise City Police Chief Dale Harper setting up a roadblock.
Taylor, turned near the Townsman Motel and proceeded north with both Harper and Taylor in pursuit. The chase, according to Taylor, then attained speeds of 130 MPH or more.
The stolen car was then driven West to Highway 287 and then south.
The pursuit ended just south of the airport after stop sticks were deployed by Cimarron County Deputy Derek Kincannon and Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Boyd Perry. The vehicle hit the sticks, tires were deflated and the chase was over.
Daniel Taylor, the Mustang's driver, was charged with having no driver's license, speeding, reckless driving, and for an outstanding warrant from Ft. Worth.
Taylor, Braun and Raines were all charged with possession of marijuana, paraphernalia, and possession of a stolen vehicle.
