Cass County burglary suspect breaks leg after police chase into Kansas City

A burglary suspect broke his leg while trying to flee from police after a homeowner found him inside a Missouri house.

A burglary suspect broke his leg while trying to flee from police after a homeowner found him inside a western Missouri residence.

The man was discovered around 11 a.m. Thursday inside a Freeman home in Cass County.

Police founs the suspect’s vehicle with four people inside when they arrived at the scene, prompting a roughly 25-minute chase that ended near Bannister Road and Interstate 435 in Kansas City.

Police say the suspect pulled over and broke his leg at some point after jumping out of the still-moving vehicle and climbing a median to escape. His car crashed into a Cass County deputy’s vehicle.

Neither the suspect’s name nor those of the other man and two women in his vehicle have been released.
