FARGO — Two people are in the Cass County Jail, after leading both Fargo and Moorhead officers on a chase through both cities, and through a construction zone.
According to city spokesman Gregg Schildberger, this started shortly after 11 p.m. Wednesday night, June 22, when Moorhead officers saw a Chevy pickup that had gotten away from Fargo officers in the past two days.
The driver then took off on Interstate 94, exiting on South University Drive, where Fargo officers eventually used tire deflation devices to slow down the pickup.
Police followed the pickup to near the Catalyst Medical Center in Fargo, where the pickup drove through a construction zone, and got stuck in mud, Schildberger said. Full story here.
Checkpoint scanner installation to create delays at Fargo airport
FARGO — Travelers flying out of Hector International Airport may see delays and longer lines at the security checkpoint while a new Homeland Security project is underway this summer.
Preparations to install new “state-of-the-art” 3D imaging scanners have already begun, but the Transportation Security Administration will begin installing the machines starting July 5, and the work will finish on July 22, said Shawn Dobberstein, Airport Authority executive director.
“They’re trying to standardize all the units in the state of North Dakota. We actually started the project a few weeks ago to move the walls out,” Dobberstein said. Full story here.
