CRESCENT SPRINGS, KY (FOX19) -

A Kentucky man is behind bars after a high-speed police chase on Wednesday night.

Just after 9 p.m., Erlanger Police received a report of a stolen vehicle from Lusby's Sunoco on Buttermilk Pike in Crescent Springs.

The owner of a 2004 Toyota Sienna van had just gotten gas and was in the store when the van was stolen from the gas pumps.

About two minutes later, an Edgewood officer observed the vehicle. When the officer attempted to stop the vehicle it accelerated, drove thru some yards and fled west on Buttermilk.

The pursuit reached speeds of 90 mph before the vehicle crashed into a utility pole in the 2500 block of Buttermilk.

The driver fled the vehicle and a perimeter was quickly established. About 10 minutes later residents reported a man running in the area of Woodcliff Drive in Crescent Springs.

Officers located the subject and based on surveillance video from Sunoco identified him as the suspect who had stolen the vehicle from the pumps. Officers also located a Chevy Blazer on the lot of Sunoco that was entered as stolen by Franklin County, KY.

Clay Burley, of Frankfort, is in the Kenton County Detention Center on charges of receiving stolen property, giving officers a false name and fleeing and evading.
