OLATHE, Kansas (AP) – A Missouri man who stole a FedEx truck and led police on a two-state, low-speed chase has been sentenced in Kansas to a year in jail.

WDAF-TV reports 19-year-old Caleb Ownby will also spend two years on probation under the sentence he received Thursday in Johnson County District Court.

Charges against the Kansas City, Mo., man are also pending in two Missouri counties where the theft originated and part of the chase occurred.

Ownby was arrested the evening of Dec. 4 in Prairie Village, Kan., about seven hours after a FedEx driver left her keys in a delivery truck at a Kansas City gas station. Police spotted the truck that afternoon and followed it slowly through the city into Kansas, eventually puncturing the tires with stop sticks.
