Driver arrested after overnight chase

Thursday, January 6, 2005

An Indianapolis man wanted for fleeing from officers was pursued by Clay, Owen and Putnam County Deputies and Indiana State Police in an area southwest of Saline City early Tuesday morning. (Editor's note: Rains was arrested around 9 a.m., shortly before deadline Tuesday.)

Clay County Deputy Josh Clarke attempted to pull Justin Rains over about 1:30 a.m. when he fled in a blue, full size pick-up.

Police dogs were brought in from Putnam and Owen counties to search for Rains after he abandoned his truck and fled on foot. He is wanted in Clay, Owen and Putnam counties. He is considered dangerous.

Rains was arrested and placed in the Clay County Jail on June 29 on habitual traffic violator and possession of marijuana charges. The reason police were pursuing him Tuesday morning was not disclosed at press time.

He is described as a 27-year-old white male with brown hair, 6 ft. 4 inches tall, weighing about 200 pounds. Rains was last seen wearing a gray sweatshirt with a green hood.
