A 26 year-old Chico man is in police custody after he led police on a high speed chase from Chico to Hamilton City on Highway 32. Early Sunday Chico Police saw a Honda station wagon that had been reported stolen. Instead of pulling over, Harry Ackerson sped away and led Chico Police and several other agencies on the chase on westbound Highway 32. The Honda's engine eventually over-heated and Akerson hit a fence. He fled the scene but was eventually caught after a short foot chase. A passenger in the car was not found. Akerson was arrested and charged with evading police and investigation into car theft.
