EMTs and law enforcement end quiet Sunday with evening calls PDF Print E-mail

Motorists traveling along Highway 61 south of the Imperial junction Monday morning observed a vehicle that had rolled with police tape still around it.

According to Perkins County Sheriff Jim Brueggeman, the wreck had occurred the previous night, Sunday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. 

Two occupants were transported to Perkins County Health Services with minor injuries. 

Brueggeman said the vehicle was taped off so in case people stopped, they would know the scene had already been attended to by law enforcement. 

Another incident Sunday night concerned a traffic stop at the Central Avenue/Highway 23 junction in Grant at 11:18 p.m. 

The vehicle closely matched a description of a reported drug courier vehicle with armed occupants and was clocked speeding, said Sheriff Brueggeman.  

The vehicle was stopped by Chief Deputy Kip Bradley and a felony vehicle stop was conducted by Chief Deputy Bradley, Sergeant Kris Larson and Sheriff Brueggeman.  

Consent to search was granted by the vehicle owner and following a search it was determined there were no drugs in the vehicle and that it was not the same vehicle that had been reported. 

The driver was given a warning for speeding and released, along with a passenger in the vehicle.
