FARGO — Authorities continued to search Tuesday, May 12, for a driver who evaded police in a chase from Horace, N.D. into West Fargo the night before.
About 10:40 p.m. Monday, troopers responded to a call about a 1996 white Dodge Dakota that had been suspiciously parked for five hours in Horace, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
When a trooper arrived, the pickup fled northeast into West Fargo, where city police took over the chase, the highway patrol said.
According to the Fargo Police Department, officers set up tire deflation devices on the road to try to stop the vehicle, but the driver turned off towards West Fargo before running into them.
The driver drove over a deflation device set up by a state trooper, the highway patrol said. Police said the driver eventually went back into Fargo, where the driver abandoned the vehicle on 67th Street in the Deer Creek neighborhood.
Police dogs and drones were brought in to search for the driver, but according to Fargo police, they were not able to find the driver, even when they tracked down the vehicle's registered owners' residence in Horace.
The vehicle was towed away from the scene. Police said there is no threat to the public.
