A 36 year old Lincoln man is in jail following a Vehicle Pursuit and Theft of several vehicles across eastern Nebraska

On Wednesday night just before midnight the Stanton County Sheriff’s office observed a westbound vehicle on Hwy 275 about four miles east of Norfolk and attempted to stop it for a traffic violation. The vehicle fled at high speeds of over 100 mph and entered the City of Norfolk at those high speeds when the pursuit was terminated due to safety concerns and the violation at that time was only for a minor traffic violation and it wasn’t until later the car was found to have been reported stolen. About an hour later. Daniel McGuane, 36, Lincoln was arrested in Battle Creek by the Madison County Sheriff’s office attempting to steal a vehicle. McGuane admitted to a citizen that he had fled from law enforcement and crashed his vehicle somewhere near Battle Creek. He was detained by that citizen at gunpoint when he attempted to steal a vehicle. A subsequent investigation by several area Sheriff’s offices found that McGuane is believed to have stolen a pickup in Lincoln and abandoned it near David City where he stole another pickup and abandoned it near near Wisner, and he then stole a Chrysler 300 that was involved in the pursuit and it is believed to still be in an unknown rural location near Battle Creek where he says he crashed. McGuane faces a lengthy list of potential charges in multiple jurisdictions and he just recently was released from parole after a long theft and drug related prison sentence. The Stanton, Madison, Cuming and Butler County Sheriff’s offices are all involved in the ongoing investigation. McGuane was arrested on charges of Speeding 105/70, Theft by Receiving (Stolen Vehicle), Operating a Motor Vehicle to Avoid Arrest in Stanton County. McGuane remains in jail at this time.
