Vehicle Pursuit

Sherburne County Sheriff's Department
A Sauk Rapids man was arrested early Tues morning following a pursuit with deputies and two additional police agencies. A deputy sheriff attempted a traffic stop with the driver of a stolen van at about 5:20 a.m. in the city of Zimmerman.
The driver refused to stop and led police on a pursuit in which speeds reached 90 mph. A PIT maneuver by a deputy brought the pursuit to a safe conclusion near the intersection of Co. Rd. 14 and Hwy. 10 in Big Lake Township.
Baton Roberts, 48 was arrested and was held for charges including fleeing police in a motor vehicle, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of stolen property. Officers from Big Lake and Elk River assisted in the arrest and no injuries occurred.
