High Speed Chase Ends Near Dover
Dover, MN (KROC AM News) - A man who led officers on a long high-speed chase on I-90 Tuesday was captured in rural northeast Olmsted County.
The Minnesota State Patrol says the man was driving a stolen vehicle that was initially spotted in Monroe, Wisconsin.
A Minnesota state trooper spotted the car headed west on I-90 in Winona County. The trooper and Winona County deputies pursued the vehicle into Olmsted County around 8:30 PM. The driver exited the interstate at Olmsted County Rd 10 and headed north. Officers ended the chase due to safety concerns.
A short while later, a farmer north of Dover called to report that “an unknown vehicle drove behind his barn.” A State Patrol helicopter and a Rochester police dog joined Olmsted County deputies trying to find the man. The man was located about an hour later and arrested without incident.
The man was identified as 49-year-old George Bojszuk of Burlington, Wisconsin.
