Callaway County Sheriff’s deputies, with help from the Fulton Police Department and Missouri State Highway Patrol, arrested three people from Fulton, Mokane and New Bloomfield following a chase through the county.
Around 12:18 a.m. Aug. 10, a deputy recognized Nathan Furlong, 19, of Mokane, driving a white SUV. The deputy knew that Furlong had a suspended driver’s license and attempted to stop the vehicle in Fulton, at which point Furlong sped off and led officers on a 12-mile chase on various state and county roads. The pursuit ended in a residential backyard on County Road 421, where Furlong and his passengers, 19-year-old Katrina Hanger of New Bloomfield and 21-year-old Shane Thomas of Fulton, fled on foot.
