GRAND FORKS — The Grand Forks Police Department used a K-9 officer to find and arrest a car chase suspect who ran to an alley and hid in a trailer early Friday morning, May 24.

Police officers initiated a traffic stop on a Jeep with expired tabs on University Avenue shortly after 1 a.m.

The driver of the Jeep drove off from the stop and officers pursued the suspect in what they described as a moderate speed chase.

The Jeep drove through University Park and police believe the tires on the Jeep deflated after it hit rocks in the park.

The suspect then ran off on foot on University Avenue.

Grandbois is being held in the Grand Forks County Jail on expected charges of fleeing, fleeing in a motor vehicle, driving under suspension, reckless endangerment and possession of marijuana paraphernalia.

Additionally, Grandbois has an arrest for child support and has been cited for driving without liability insurance and for having expired tabs.
