Winona Sheriff: 2 In Custody After Chase
WINONA (AP) - Winona County officials say two people have been taken into custody and one of them has been hospitalized for suspected methamphetamine ingestion following a high-speed chase.
Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Ron Ganrude says a Minnesota City gas station clerk reported a car had stolen gas multiple times in the past week. Deputies followed the car when the clerk called again Sunday.
The chase reached 100 mph before Wabash County authorities used spike strips to disable the car.
Ganrude says authorities found a scale and a small bag of meth outside the car. He says the driver told officials he had eaten some of the meth. The man's condition worsened and he was flown to a hospital, where he was in custody.
The passenger was arrested on a previous warrant.
