ALEXANDRIA, KY (FOX19)-- A Cincinnati man faces numerous charges after leading police on a car chase through Campbell and Kenton counties Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say 44-year-old William Sellers hired Ronald Boyd to drive him to several store locations throughout Campbell County. Boyd later found out that Sellers was shoplifting from these stores.

Ronald Boyd noticed that William Sellers was concealing numerous packages of cigars as he left a Shell station in Alexandria. Boyd questioned Sellers about what he was doing, and became concerned when a Campbell County police officer pulled them over. Ronald Boyd got out of the car to speak to the officer when William Sellers jumped into the driver's seat and pulled away.

Police chased Sellers through Campbell and Kenton counties. The pursuit ended when the vehicle ran out of gas in Covington. He was arrested and charged with Shoplifting and Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Campbell County officials plan to charge Sellers with several counts of Endangerment and Fleeing.
