CLINTON COUNTY, Mich. (WILX) - A 38-year-old man was taken into custody Sunday following a pursuit in Clinton and Ionia counties.

According to authorities, the chase started in Lansing, went westbound on Grand River Avenue in Watertown Township and continued in Ionia County, where it ended in Portland.

After the vehicle came to a stop, the driver, a 38-year-old man from Lansing, exited the Suburban and was taken into custody. He was lodged for fleeing, possession of methamphetamine and multiple warrants.

At the scene, an enclosed trailer - a Nighthawk brand single axel trailer - was found to have a scratched-off VIN. Officials are currently working on assistance for VIN restoration to identify the owner of this trailer and determine if it has been reported stolen.

The Clinton County Sheriff’s Office said initial reports of a kidnapping and victim within the trailer were found to be false.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office at 989-224-5200.
