SHAWNEE COUNTY — Law enforcement authorities are investigating a report of alleged violation of stalking order and have a suspect in custody.

Just before 3a.m. Tuesday, a deputy noticed a truck in the 5500 Block of Lincolnshire Circle in rural Shawnee County that possibly belonged to a suspect with a lifetime stalking order in effect, according to Deputy Shayna Anderson.

The protected party is a resident in that area. The truck quickly left and due to heavy fog, the deputy was unable to pursue the vehicle.

Another deputy located the vehicle a short time later as it entered Interstate 70 from SW Wanamaker Road. The deputy conducted a traffic stop near SW 6th and Rock Garden Drive.

The deputy made an arrest and booked the driver identified as Charles F. Adkins, 50, Topeka, on a requested charge of felony violation of a stalking order, a felony probation violation and traffic violations, according to Anderson.
