WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Doctors have performed open heart surgery on the West Fargo chief of police to bypass some blockage.

The family of Chief Arland Rasmussen says he came through surgery without any problems Saturday and is in recovery.

Assistant Chief Mike Reitan says Rasmussen began to experience discomfort in his chest on Thursday evening. Rasmussen went to the Sanford Emergency Center and was admitted for testing. The tests revealed blockage within his heart that needed surgery.

The family asks that visitations be limited to allow Rasmussen an opportunity to rest. They thanked residents for their expressions of concern.
