One man has been charged in Otter Tail County District Court in connection with a burglary and chase Tuesday night.
Jacob M. Dusing, 19, Alexandria, Minn., faces one count each of first-degree burglary, fleeing a peace officer and giving a peace officer a false name.
Dusing, who was arrested Tuesday, was being held in the Otter Tail County Jail Thursday night in lieu of $20,000 bond or $2,500 cash bail.
Another man arrested in the case, Thomas Ohren, 19, Ashby, Minn., is expected to be charged today with similar counts, according to the Otter Tail County Attorney's Office.
Dusing was the driver of a pickup that led authorities on a 40-minute chase Tuesday evening, court documents state.
The chase began when a deputy spotted a pickup matching the description of one seen leaving the scene of a burglary in rural Underwood and tried to stop it.
The chase ended about 6:15 p.m. Tuesday when the pickup bogged down in a field near Parkers Prairie and its two occupants ran away.
Dusing and Ohren were arrested about an hour later by Parkers Prairie police.
Ohren, who was wanted by Douglas County authorities on an unrelated drug matter, was taken to the Douglas County Jail.
He was charged in Douglas County District Court Thursday with one count of first-degree controlled substance crime. Ohren is accused of selling methamphetamine.
Ohren was being held in the Douglas County Jail Thursday night in lieu of $500,000 bond or $50,000 cash bail.
