Fairbury Police Chief Chad Sprunk called the Lincoln County Sheriff's office Saturday at 6:40 p.m. and said one of his officers, 40-year-old Stanley Colby, stole a police car and might be in the Lincoln County area.

A North Platte police officer on the lookout near the I-80 overpass spotted the stolen police car, and police officers followed as the car headed south on U.S. Highway 83 out of North Platte, toward McCook.

"As it was unknown why Mr. Colby had stolen his police car, officers waited until they had multiple backup units in place before stopping him," the sheriff's office said. Deputies arrived to help and the car was stopped around mile marker 68 on U.S. 83, near Lone Star Road.

Officers ordered Colby out of the car. He was detained without incident and taken to the Lincoln County sheriff's office for questioning, then jailed and charged with possession of stolen property. Bond is set at $50,000.

The investigation is ongoing, the sheriff's office said.
