A foot chase in Beaver City ended in an arrest after police said the suspect ran into a house with a mother and two children inside.

According to the Furnas County Sheriff's Office, a deputy arrived at Kelley's Grocery Story at 11:06 a.m. on Thursday after receiving a report about a man with a warrant.

The sheriff's office reported that Gregg A. Klein, 19, of Beaver City had an arrest warrant for driving under suspension.

When the deputy confronted Klein, he tried to escape on foot. Police said Klein ran into a house in the 200 block of 9th Street in an attempt to escape.

Klein did not have permission to be on the property or inside the residence, and was taken into custody on the back porch.

Police later learned that there were two children and their mother inside the residence who were extremely shaken up.

Klein was taken to the Furnas County Sheriff’s Office and jailed on the following warrants:

  • Furnas County: Driving under suspension, bond $7,500
  • Phelps County: Forgery 2nd degree, bond $5,000
  • Lancaster County: Theft and fail to appear, bond $5,000

Klein was also jailed on two new Furnas County charges of resisting arrest and trespassing.

Bond has not been set on the new charges and an arraignment date has yet to been set.
