SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A Sioux Fall man saw his recently stolen Trailblazer being driven on West 26th Street yesterday afternoon and called police.
Officer Sam Clemens says when police tried stopping the vehicle the driver sped away and there was a short pursuit.
Clemens says the suspects abandoned the vehicle near Tabor Place and Thad Place and they ran into a field. Clemens says residents gave police good descriptions of the suspects and they were apprehended nearby. They were arrested for possessing a stolen vehicle and aggravated eluding.
Clemens says officers found remnants of a meth lab in the vehicle so 21-year-old Alex Lankford and 33-year-old Tyler Hausten, both of Sioux Falls, are also charged with possession of methamphetamine and making meth.
