Limo chase suspect to appear in court next week

Vicente Soto, 25, of Kirksville, Mo.

A northeast Missouri man charged in connection with a high-speed limo chase back in December has his case moved up to Adair County Circuit court.

Vicente Soto, 25, of Kirksville is charged with felony counts of stealing a motor vehicle and property damage.

He remains in the Adair County Jail on $25,000 cash only bond.

Soto is accused of stealing a limousine from a Kirksville business and leading several law enforcement agencies on a high-speed chase thru three counties.

Soto has already entered guilty pleas to felony charges of tampering with a motor vehicle and resisting arrest in Macon County.

He was given a suspended execution of sentence and placed on five years probation in the Macon County case.

Soto waived his preliminary hearing yesterday and was denied a bond reduction.

His case now moves to circuit court where he's due in court next week.
