On April 28, 2020, at approximately 4:53 AM, a Callaway County Sheriff’s Office K9 unit was proactively patrolling the Kingdom City area.  During the patrol, the deputy spotted a vehicle that had been reported stolen to the St. Louis, MO Police Department.  The K9 unit, assisted by a second deputy, attempted to stop the vehicle near the US Highway 54 – Gold Road intersection in Kingdom City.  The vehicle failed to stop and a vehicle pursuit ensued on westbound (south) US Highway 54 to Fulton.
