Suspect Stole Vehicle Before Standoff

Suspect Stole Vehicle Before Standoff

It took four hours, two planes and authorities from two states, but a Lincoln County stand off has come to an end.

Authorities arrested 34-year-old Tyson Shawn Wessels of Chancellor southeast of Harrisburg. They first caught up with the suspect in a field along Highway 11 at about 9:00 a.m. Friday.

Wessels was arrested around 11:15 Friday morning on one count of aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer and third degree burglary.

At about 5:00 a.m. Friday morning the suspect tried to steal an ATM machine from the Pumphouse convenience store in Valley Springs according to the owner. That’s when a neighbor heard the burglar alarm going off and called authorities and wrote down the license plate of the vehicle.

Authorities later found out that the vehicle the suspect was driving was stolen.

Authorities tried to stop the individual, but the suspect rammed a vehicle of a Minnehaha deputy and the deputy fired three shots into the back of the stolen pick-up truck.

The suspect then went into Lyon County, Iowa. There authorities tracked him with GPS that was installed on the stolen vehicle. They continued to track him into Lincoln County where he was later arrested.
