Investigating Continues After Vehicle Stolen from Fort Pierre Found in North Dakota

Stanley County Sheriff's Vehicle


FORT PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) An investigation continues after six people were taken into custody in North Dakota following the discovery of a vehicle that was stolen from Fort Pierre. Chief Deputy Greg Swanson of the Stanley County Sheriff’s Office says law enforcers were looking into the report of an abandoned car-which appeared two miles south of Fort Pierre-when they discovered that another vehicle had been taken just outside Fort Pierre city limits at 1302 South Highway 83. It’s thought the 2001 Chevrolet ¾ ton Silverado pickup was stolen late Friday night or early Saturday. Swanson says officials in North Dakota’s Rolette County contacted Stanley County investigators after it was discovered that the pickup had been driven through woods and trees where it stopped a few feet across the Canadian border and the subjects walked back into North Dakota. Six people were taken into custody and are said to be from the Hastings, Nebraska area. The six-four adults and two juveniles-were apprehended about 6:00 p.m. Saturday and the pickup was considered totaled. The two juveniles had been reported as runaways. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, U.S. Border Patrol and Rolette County Sheriff’s Office were involved in investigation in North Dakota. Rolette County is located next to the Canadian border. Swanson says charges may be pending in North Dakota and Grand Theft charges are likely from Stanley County.
