The search is over for one of Minnehaha County's most wanted.
According to Minnehaha County Sheriff Mike Milstead, 20-year-old Tahlen Bourassa was wanted on felony charges for grand larceny and ingesting a controlled substance.
Authorities were able to locate Bourassa in his car around 2 p.m. Wednesday, but he took off when officers tried to stop him. Law enforcement didn't chase him because they were in an unmarked vehicle.
A little later, a tip call from a Dell Rapids resident led deputies to a business south of town where Bourassa was hiding. Authorities had heard the suspect was recently armed with a shotgun and possibly was under the influence of drugs.
Following a four-hour standoff, Bourassa surrendered to authorities around 9 p.m.
“They were able to get him out safely. We have kind of reunited him for a few minutes with his parents who were, like us, very concerned about him. We now are going to take him in. He is in on two felony warrants but now we are going to make sure he gets an evaluation, so we are taking him to a hospital for that evaluation,” Milstead said.
The Dell Rapids ambulance and fire department, as well as emergency management and were all on standby. They also received assistance from the Highway Patrol and U.S. Marshals Service.
The Minnehaha County Jail confirms Bourassa is out of the hospital and now in custody.
