LPD’s Northwest Team tried to stop a vehicle around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday on NW 12th Street near the airport. That started a chase that went westbound on I-80, west to O Street, and then eastbound to NW 22nd Street.
A 41 year old man was taken into custody without further incident.
A search of the vehicle turned up a small amount of methamphetamine and a machete style knife. The suspect is a convicted felon and prohibited from having weapons.
The man was booked for possession of methamphetamine and possession of a weapon by a prohibited person.
