POPPLE CREEK -- Authorities have found the suspect who fled from police after allegedly stealing an ATV Thursday morning.

Benton County Sheriff Troy Heck says 23-year-old Jessie Tolmie, of St. Cloud, was found about a mile west of Popple Creek just before 3:45 p.m.

At about 11:00 a.m. a deputy saw Tolmie driving an ATV illegally near the intersection of County Road 3 and County Road 4.

Further investigation found the ATV was stolen earlier in the morning. When officers confronted Tolmie about the ATV, he fled from police and hid in the nearby woods.

The stolen ATV was returned to the owner.

Tolmie was arrested and taken to the Benton County Jail. He faces charges of possession of stolen property and fleeing a police officer.
