COLESBURG, Iowa (AP) - A northeast Iowa man faces several charges following a police chase in Dubuque.

Dubuque police say 30-year-old Aaron T. Weipert, of Colesburg, was arrested early Tuesday following a chase on the city’s west side.

A criminal complaint says officials had attempted to stop a white van linked to an earlier crime when the van sped away. The vehicle exceeded the speed limit on multiple streets, including driving 60 mph in a 30 mph zone.

The Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1CVShFA) police used stop sticks to stop the van and arrest the driver, later identified as Weipert. He faces charges of eluding and operating while under the influence, and several traffic citations. Court records do not list an attorney.
