On 5/30/14, Sparks Police Department officers initiated a traffic stop on a suspicious vehicle. The vehicle, a dark colored Chrysler 200, fled from officers at a high rate of speed. After a short period of time, the pursuit was terminated due to the risk posed to the public and the driver's erratic behavior. The driver of the vehicle was tentatively identified at that time as Robert Kimmell. On 5/31/14, the vehicle was located and confirmed to be stolen out of an RPD case number. SPD Detectives had been looking for Kimmell for charges of Eluding and Possession of Stolen Property-Motor Vehicle. On 6/11/14, Kimmell was located at a local Wal-Mart and was taken into custody.
