CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - A Chesterfield County man faces multiple charges after authorities say he led them on a chase into North Carolina.

Suffolk Police Department notified the Gates County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina that they were pursuing a wanted man heading toward Gates County.

The sheriff’s office said the chase went for about 10 miles at speeds of over 80 mph, but Krys Karyshyn was apprehended a short time later.

Karyshyn is being held in North Carolina on a fugitive warrant. He has been charged with 11 felonies and multiple misdemeanors in Virginia. Additional charges are pending in North Carolina.
