A preliminary hearing has been delayed for a Council Grove man accused of stealing a pickup and leading a chase into Emporia last year.


Dustin Craige, age 26 of Council Grove, was charged with theft, flee and elude and aggravated assault on law enforcement after the incident Nov. 25. Authorities say Craige stole a truck near the Interstate 35-Kansas Highway 130 junction on Nov. 25. He then allegedly led Kansas Highway Patrol troopers and Emporia Police officers on a chase, occasionally driving into oncoming traffic, before he was arrested near 23rd and Hillcrest.

The preliminary hearing has been reset for Feb. 11.
