DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - St. Louis County Sheriff deputies along with the Minnesota State Patrol, Hibbing, Eveleth, Floodwood and Duluth Police participated in a pursuit of a stolen car in the early morning hours of Thursday. The chase began when officers attempted to stop a car in the Independence area after a report that it drove away from the Pike Lake Holiday Station without paying for gas. Pursuing officers then determined that the car and its license plates were stolen. The 54 year old driver from Meadowlands was finally arrested after the vehicle was forced off the road by squads at the intersection of County Road 7 and the Swan Lake Road in the Alborn area. The car was stolen in Superior earlier this month and the license plates were stolen overnight in Duluth.
