A pursuit involving personnel from five different counties and the South Dakota Highway Patrol ended with a Kansas man in custody after the vehicle he was driving crashed in a field west of Alpena.
Jerauld County Sheriff Jason Weber initiated the pursuit about 9:30 a.m. Monday after receiving a report that a person driving a North Dakota-plated pickup had taken diesel fuel from a farm yard. The pursuit ended eight miles west of Alpena in a field when the driver of the pickup crashed the car into a creek.
The driver, a 47-year-old man from Lansing, Kansas, was taken into custody. Authorities say the man has felony warrants from Kansas.
The Jerauld County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation.
