A Grand Forks man is in jail after a two-state chase ended in a residential Moorhead neighborhood.
Dustin Desjarlais, 30, is facing charges for fleeing on foot, reckless driving, and a parole warrant out of North Dakota. His original charges were drug-related.The North Dakota Highway Patrol is considering further charges. Just before ten last night, troopers said they tried to pull over a vehicle. The driver fled across the border into Minnesota. Speeds were reported to be more than 100 miles per hour at times. Moorhead police used stop sticks to slow the vehicle down. Two suspects then ran away in a residential area along highway 75 near the Youth Hockey Arena. Clay County, Minnesota State Patrol, and Dilworth Police helped track them down. One was caught when they knocked on a neighbor's door, asking to be let in. The other suspect, 25-year-old Cassie Svedberg, was cited for drug paraphernalia possession and released.
BODY DISCOVERED UNDER DUMP TRUCK IN FARGO
Police said no foul play is suspected after a body was found underneath a dump truck at body shop.
It's the same area a homeless man was found frozen to death four years ago. Police got the call to Bilal Auto Repair just after 5:00 yesterday afternoon. They found the man's body under the parked truck in a parking lot. They say it doesn't appear the truck was related to the death. Police said they know who the man is, but are waiting to notify his family before they release his name. An autopsy will be done.
In January of 2014, a man's body was found in the same area and also underneath a flatbed truck. Police say the homeless man died from exposure to the cold.
