Suspects in Stolen Van Chase Linked to Sioux Falls Car Vandalism
A high-speed chase on I-29 has led to the arrest of two juveniles who are allegedly wanted for smashing a number of car windows early Monday morning, (October 9) in Sioux Falls.
KDLT News is reporting the chase began Monday afternoon around 12:30 on I-29 just north of the Canton exit.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol told KDLT News that a Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputy spotted a silver minivan reportedly stolen in Sioux Falls heading northbound on I-29. The Highway Patrol pursued the stolen vehicle for nearly 20 miles on the interstate until it pulled over north of I-90 in Sioux Falls.
The juvenile suspects inside the van were arrested by troopers according to the KDLT News report. A short time later, dispatchers informed the Highway Patrol that Sioux Falls Police were looking for two juveniles wanted for questioning in a series of car vandalisms overnight.
A number of Sioux Falls residents awoke Monday morning to discover their cars were vandalized overnight. The KDLT News report states that more than ten vehicles experienced window damage in the area of Glendale Avenue and 18th Street on Monday (October 9). Windows appeared to have been smashed out with rocks according to authorities. The majority of the damaged vehicles had their back windows broken out.
The two juvenile suspects being held are facing charges for Intentional Damage to Property. The Highway Patrol told KDLT News that additional charges related to the stolen vehicle, and the car chase are pending as the investigation continues.
Because the two suspects are juveniles, their names, genders, and ages are being withheld at this time.
