Stolen Vehicle Recovered Following Chase.

September 23, 2009

Rural Marshall County - A Grundy County man was arrested on Tuesday, 9-22-09, after Marshall County Deputies pursued the man in a pickup truck that was reported as stolen from Marshalltown earlier that day.

A 2008 Chevrolet pickup belonging to Welker Construction was reported stolen to the Marshalltown Police Department. Later that morning(09/22/2009), Sheriff's Deputies were dispatched north of Marshalltown, based on the activation of the "On-Star" GPS system in the vehicle. Deputies located the vehicle being driven by a male subject. When the deputies attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver attempted to elude the officers on gravel roads between Albion and Marshalltown, for approximately 12 minutes.

The chase ended northeast of Albion on a rural county road when the suspect decided to stop the vehicle on his own accord. He was taken into custody, without incident.

From there he was transferred to the Marshall County Jail, and has been held on $10,000 bond, following an initial appearance in court on 9-23-09. There was no damage to the pickup, which was towed and later released to Welker Construction.
