Bond Set at $100,000 for Central City Man Leading Police Chase
Bond has been set at $100,000 for a 27-year-old rural Odin man who faces multiple charges after leading Central City Police on a lengthy and sometimes high speed chase Monday night. Travis Finley of Ferrydale Road was charged with unlawful possession of meth manufacturing material, criminal damage to government supported property, and aggravated fleeing and eluding police.
The chase started on U.S. 51 in Central City and ended when Finley's car collided with the squad car trying to block him from getting to his residence. Police later found a large number of chemicals used in the manufacture of meth in the vehicle.
Finley is also accused of kicking out a back window while being held in the Central City squad car. The meth charge has a mandatory prison sentence upon conviction because Finley had a prior meth conviction. The public defender was appointed to represent Finley.
