Saturday evening at about 7:35pm a Sergeant from the Richland County Sheriff’s Department was working traffic enforcement on US 14 West and identified a silver Dodge pick up traveling in excess of the posted speed limit. The Sergeant activated his warning lights and the truck accelerated. The Sergeant activated his siren and chased the truck west on Highway 14, then north on Bosstown Lane. The truck drove through a private yard, across a septic mound and into the woods where all three occupants fled on foot. Several Richland County Deputies responded, as well as Richland County DNR Warden Kirk Konichek.
Richland County Deputies deployed the department drone while calling for a K-9 from Grant County Sheriff’s Department. Deputies also created a perimeter around the area. A Deputy noticed a vehicle moving in the area and stopped it. It was learned the female operator was there to aid the fleeing parties. Deputies soon located the 3 suspects and took them into custody. Charges on the 3 males have been referred to the Richland County District Attorney’s Office. Charges for the female party are pending.
Sheriff Bindl gave high praise to the deputies involved for the safety and professionalism that they exhibited in the incident.
